Annegret Soltau: Self Portrait Coined by Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso, the term ‘collage’ points towards a medium simultaneously serious and tongue-in-cheek; a technique that is deeply referential of the political world in which the works were produced. Via the assemblage of different objects and images, collage interrogates the fundamental concept of what it is to create art, whilst offering a prismatic reflection of the social change and upheaval of the twentieth century.
Fantastic way of mixing things that shouldn't work. Experimentation is key with collage. I don't like creating collages without the main images being my own work, but it could be interesting to incorporate other work, old photographs, sketches, patterns etc
