    Grids is an experimental series of graphical poster drafts. The posters combine collaged holiday photographs and 3D-generated sculptures. While the content and materials vary from work to work, a clearly defined grid is drawn through every poster.

    I am a french collagist. I began the collage seven years ago. I work especially on series by looking constantly for different directions.

    Three are extracted from a series of collages titled 'Green Lady' and the other four are extracted from a long series of more than 300 abstract, instinctive, spontaneous, impulsive collages.

    My inspiration comes from my experience of mental illness. My methodology reflects how I process information; taking something, reimagining it, exploring its possibilities and making something new with it. Breaking things down, seeing them from a different perspective / in a different context helps me find something I can relate to / understand. I twist concepts, challenges perceptions and deal with difficult emotions / ugly topics by endeavouring to unveil something beautiful. What constitutes beauty? Does this process of distortion make the subject matter more approachable? easier to digest and understand?

    Paper collage is at the core of my art practice. I am drawn to its immediacy and spontaneity. It is the perfect medium as it enables constant transformation. The collages ultimately take form in other mediums such as textiles. It is a depiction of the natural world and our relationship to it. Natural History, Victorian imagery, tales with anthropomorphic themes, are a source of inspiration for me. I meld together traditional collage techniques with distortion turning things upside down bringing the beautiful and ugly together. Sourcing and collecting imagery occurs over a period of time. Repetition is an important part of my method, endless cutting, constructing and breaking things down again. Various birds, beasts and flora reoccur throughout the work. They are sliced up, scaled up and morphed together to create strange and unexpected hybrids.

    In my collages I play with color and shape, juxtaposing ordinary activities or landscape fragments with geometrical elements, offering a new perspective on the usual aspects of life and reality. As a particularity, in most of my works, I prefer concentrating the visual in the center of the work, surrounded by the emptiness of black or, on the contrary, the openness towards different possible perception, thoughts, interactions.

    'Back to the beholder' is the motto behind my digital collages. Better said, a unique identity developed over years. I use present-day visual language and techniques and combine it with old, but fundamental, rules of painting and drawing. So many things subjectively shape our perception nowadays. All that can be used to move the beholder. Modern media influences, but also almost forgotten ideas about shapes, colors and expression. My wish is that the beholder feels addressed immediately without any further explanation in order to create a personal experience.

    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.

    Military service(photos) is a collaboration with Solmaz Panahi, it is watching Obligatory military service in Iran, it is a story of a girl in small village who is waiting for her fiancé back from military service and she imagine herself as bride on the photos he sent.(it is still happening sometimes , young men for getting married should finish their military service first, meanwhile in 2 years when they’re far the family oblige the girl to get married with another guy…)

    '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.

    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.
