Collage is…

“…like a magic puzzle of torn pages for me.

I have always been fascinated by the colorful pages that magazines have, even though I never recall myself actually reading one. I was always starring at the illustrations they have.

Paper pieces work like the most lively brush strokes. At first glance, they might look irrelevant to each other, but when they come together, all those different shapes and patterns compose the final images. This is the most challenging part for me while making collage. There is no specific number of pieces I have to put together in the right place. There isn’t a logical way, I have to follow my own way to complete a collage, to see beyond the words on a magazine page, to see them as tones. One collage consists of so many pieces glued together to paper or canvas so it takes me a lot of time to find them but I don’t mind, it’s part of the game.

The rules of this game is up to me, there are no restrictions. Is there any artist out there who like restrictions…?”
