'Death Landscapes III' - The transitory nature of imagery and material examined through a series of internal landscape collages. Constructed with layers of cut plain paper, the miniature relief images become visible when light casts shadows across the surface, demarcating and defining space to complete the work.

Taizo Matsuyama is a visual artist based in Berlin, Germany.
'These cutout series are initiated from the landscapes in Berlin. I believe the shape I discovered that already has included myself in it. I am interested in how does the shapes develop through the several procedures of collage making?'

Ewa Doroszenko’s prints are sparse, pared down, and confined to a black, white and grey. The images in this particular series draw on the affective and irrational side of our perception, fossilizing in memory the place of their creation: an intersection between Doroszenk’s own mind and the physical location of her artistic residency. As a starting point, her collages trace back to photographic material from lifestyle magazines, painting albums and atlases. From here, digital graphics illustrate the flow of visual material: collecting, archiving, reproduction in the context of modern times.
Love the compositions of these surreal collages from the San Francisco based artist.
'I draw inspiration from my dreams, nature, arts, literature, movies and life in general. My collages are made out of old movie photographs, found magazines, paper, ink and embroidery thread. I like to transform images in unexpected ways, until a new story appears before my eyes.'
The Material world, symbolised by the hundred-dollar bill, is merged with the religion in this collage work.
'The portrait of Benjamin Franklin on the $100 bill has been placed on a sacred icon which is an object of worship for the Catholics and Orthodox.
This is not an attempt to blame church for obvious things. And this is not an allegation against Benjamin Franklin for his materialism and attitude toward the religion and church. This is just another instance of visualization of materialism.'

Collage and assemblage by the French Graphic Designer.
'My artwork is guide by the desire to tell stories. But in stead of writing, i use the glue and the scissors. What lead me is the pleasure to play with the signs by assembling the images like a playful and enriching exquisite corpse. I wish to unleash the viewers to have their own interpretation, according to their culture and personal story.'
'My work is about memory—not just my own, but the process itself. Each piece is a combined portrait of my personal narrative and our collective memory. Each comes from a strong discipline of looking back and an instinct to keep things.'
Isabella Kelly-Ramirez pervades her work with ideas of masquerade, Carnival and the parade world while infusing contemporary notions of representations of women.
