    Largely inspired by his reflections on recent events, Lessons in Perspective focusses on the duality of perspective in situations and the need for empathetic resolve. Coming out of a very turbulent 2016, Scott became increasingly interested in the divisions among people and the way in which people engaged one another. To Scott, it wasn’t the issues themselves that gave pause, but the way they were discussed and the lack of empathy to one another’s point of view that only seemed to sharpen the edges of conversation and further distance any resolution. Taking notice from these situations, the works within the exhibition reflect on these situations in varying stages of acceptance and action.

    'Botanical Catwalk' is a new series with a special focus on the female figure in synergy with nature and the loss of identity. She cuts and layers retro fashion and botanical imagery creating a work of art with a particular vision of beauty.

    This combination of two completely recognizable elements merging into a new meaning without necessarily erasing their original content is a key factor in her research and working process.

    The simplicity of the process itself is a harmonious balance between selecting and collecting the images before cutting and pasting them into a whole new context. By doing so an image that may seem very banal at first transforms itself.

    Josie's series 'Fractions' use scraps and pieces from old 'failed' paintings to create intuitive arrangements that evoke landscape, still-life, or cosmic events, based on self-imposed restraints.

    My background is in mathematics and earth sciences. As an artist, I explore the visual consequences of basic mathematic concepts such as symmetry, random processes, and pattern recognition.

    Perfect symmetry, while simple to describe mathematically and create with a computer algorithm, is rare in nature. Natural objects exhibiting near-perfect symmetry are striking -- mineral crystals, leaves, flowers, animals, canyons, and mountains -- but in nearly every case, a closer look reveals differences across supposed lines of symmetry.

    The ability to recognize an underlying symmetric form in an image that is mathematically asymmetrical is an example of the highly developed human ability to find and describe patterns. The following series of collages explores this by enforcing reflectional symmetry in geometric shapes. The symmetry is deliberately approximated by using two separate pieces of the same image for each supposed reflection.

    collage

    I am inspired by industrial tools, knots and rope, animal hide and twine, steel and copper, natural materials and layers of dirt. Drawn to the materials one would normally manipulate with thier hands – wood, stone, metal, woodworking, ceramics, welding, construction– I use flat representations of them. Sometimes I abstract them completely or reinforce with abstract and bold color shapes.

    Making these collages by hand with razors and glue helps structure my process. I am forced to find new colors and textures and the physicality of the work informs how I approach each shape, each blank page.

    I find that the matte paper and styling of art, lifestyle and fashion publications to be the best. After exploring magazine shops for a variety of fresh material, I put each image on trail after cutting, and slowly arrange the fragments in a chaotic dance.

    This series is called Vessels.

    Debora Van Der Vliet

    collage

    My name is Debora van der Vliet and I am a visual artist living in Amsterdam. With different images, techniques and materials I create new stories with my own inner world as a guide.

    Although I focused on video and animation during my study, my point of interest has shifted to creating collage art. One of the things I find interesting in this medium is the interaction of the images combined. By starting the dialogue and reassembling the found images, allowing them to tell a new story. These stories are surreal and dreamlike, as a kind of lucid dream. Strange but also light and playful.
    That, combined with the presence of several layers does relate to my own inner world which is a conflicting but at the same time harmonious place to be.

    collage

    My work is about the private aspects of the human condition, or what i like to call the beauty of melancholy. I am trying to express this through often putting the face or body into a geometric or minimalistic context. What i really love about doing collage work is, that you have to let the process guide you more than you guide the process. Your intuition has to choose the images you use.

    Xampa Mokum is a collage artist from Poble Sec, Barcelona.

    'I make collage in response to the pressures of the city and the pressures of my life. The scratched and broken letters become the way I read my way home, the cut-up bodies are those around me, unfamiliar and alien. Amidst the panic there is order, at least I want there to be.'

    Collage is my way to look for answers, putting them together to try to make some sense of it. It helps me to understand somethings, without having to think about them. Collage has a privileged relationship with our epoch, the latter being understood as a juxtaposition of heterogeneities. a contingent net upon the temporary meeting points, their fugues and voids included. The Disappearance of every kind of hierarchy and an « assemblage » of inequalities. Overlapped messages which texturize ephemeral realities, only fulfilled if related with the environment.

    collage

    The images I create are the consummation of a road of fragmentation of accident and fortuity. The endless search for obsolete images is the translation of a struggle to create a space for the past in the present, an approach that intends to stimulate a connection between memory and imagination.

    From an exhaustive, impatient and spontaneous artistic practice, I manifest the necessity of deforming a world constructed on appearances, that increasingly memorizes itself through images.

    Through cutting, glueing and abusively manipulating photographies and text, I continue to develop a body of work with the will to create fictional realities, that end up being the result of unconscious explorations of my inner battles.
