Description

Meet the Masters of Collage!

 

Versatility, innovation, inspiration—that’s what The Masters series offers artists and crafters, and this superb new collection offers a stunning look at contemporary collage work from approximately 40 leading artists. It features a breathtaking mix of techniques from traditional cut-and-paste to digital to collage with paint or encaustic, and styles ranging from wildly playful and colorful to evocative, almost monochrome images.

Each highlighted master takes center stage in an informative eight-page feature that includes nearly a dozen gorgeous, high-quality photos plus a short essay by curator Randel Plowman placing the impressive work and its creator in context.

 

The innovative featured artists include:

Cecil Touchon  - Jonathan Talbot  -  Lynne Perrella  -  Lynn Whipple  -  James Michael Starr and others

A collage museum in a book

Few words and an overload of inspiration, that''s how I would describe this wonderful feast on the eyes.

I''ve had this book on my coffee table for about half a year before I completely finished it. It took me that long to get through it, not because it''s no good, but because there''s simply too much to see and my mind couldn''t cope with all those beautiful images at once ;-) And now that I''m all through, I might as well start over again, cause this is one you can come back to again and again.

This is not a book about artists and their process, this is not a book about the meaning of collage in the art world, this is not a book to gain information on techniques or materials. What it is, is like a huge (and when I say huge I mean enormous) collage museum in a book! 40 collage artists are presented through their work. A very short introduction is given to each artist and some short quotes of what they say of their work are spread through the presentation. That''s it, that''s all, and that''s more than enough.

If anything this book shows just how diverse the medium of collage can be and if you don''t at least get 100 ideas from it, you must be blind ;-) I loved it. The only drawback of it might be that you cannot look at the works in their actual size. I would have loved to see some of them up close and see how the different layers were done, but that''s the limit of dealing with a book instead of a real museum.

Still, if somebody out there wants to build a collage museum that has all these works in it, I would definitely move right in and never go out again!

One of the best things about this particular book is the range of artistic styles contained therein. I have purchased books before that claim to show a wide range of styles in a particular subject, for example journal pages, and when I get the book I''m disappointed in that even though the work is interesting, it appears to all run along the same lines. That is maybe the taste of the author or the editor.

Not so this book. There are, indeed, a wide range of artistic styles here. Some of them I really don''t like and some of them I think are fascinating and beautiful, which is as it should be when doing a survey of various artists. Several works by each artist are shown, with a brief overview of how the artist works and what material he/she uses. The color reproductions are very good although I think some of the darker pieces probably look better in person. That said, from what I can tell, you can still see the detail in each work. I''m having fun just studying two or three artists a day.

I purchased this book as a gift for my partner. He is very active creatively, and has begun to delve into the world of collage. This book has served as inspiration for him, and I enjoy flipping through it as well. There is great quotes scattered throughout, background information on the artists and materials to read, and of course the artwork itself is phenomenal and high quality. This book now lives on our coffee table. I highly recommend for any art lover.

This book was really inspiring to me and very useful in school as well (Art and Art History degree). If you''re interested in collage this has a bit of something from many divergent artists in the genre. Not very specific to any one kind of collage technique or subject matter but a great introductory book.
