Featuring dynamic works from the contemporary collage landscape, The Age of Collage Vol. 3 showcases a new crop of creative vanguards advancing the medium's possibilities, piece by piece, splice by splice. With its foundations in Surrealism and Dadaism, what was once a convention-defying practice has maintained a voice for generations. Equipped with a craft knife, paintbrush, stylus, or scissors, a collage artist's toolkit is as varied as their output and this title brings their work back to the paper page. Investigating the varied aesthetic cues and cultural tropes that inspire their interdisciplinary approach, this comprehensive volume details more than 70 artists discovering new ways of elevating the genre.
