Recently I've been getting more into collages (I started working on a zine, and zines are known for their sporadic cut-and-paste style). I have access to a ton of old Denver newspapers from the 90s and as a result I can really express myself using all these ads for restaurants that don't exist anymore and the like with a glue stick and scissors. (see below).

I like old collages a lot, ones from around the 20s and 30s when print media was just starting to take hold and become popular in the public sphere. The best ones are by the Dadaists, I feel, they pioneered a lot of technique in the style and helped usher us into modernity. I guess collages also have a lot of overlap with the pop art movement of the 1960s and, of course, the punk movement of the 1970s. It's compelling to see how collages have changed over time as they become adopted by different schools of thought.

What d'you think about collages? What are some of your faves?

Aw HECK yeah!

I haven't done many. [Here is one example; content warning!]

However, they are really fun and interesting to do, almost like writing magnet poetry.

Some of my favorites are actually from a dear artist friend of mine who passed away. I don't think I will be able to find any pictures to share, but hers were amazing! They were often mixed into the backgrounds of dioramas or paintings.

At one point in time, she also had a beautiful one in her home that was made by another artist out of things that he fished out of the sea (e.g.: old floppy disks, rope, etc.). It was huge and heavy though! One time it fell off of the wall and nearly destroyed her computer monitor. :pc:
