Collage is on the rise as an art form and it is being explored in new and intriguing ways every day. As a new and independent magazine, we are here to highlight talented and thought-provoking artists that are not afraid to push the boundaries of what is socially acceptable. We are specifically keeping our eyes out for artists that cross lines that have been set by aristocratic elites and works that force us to ask again questions that we thought we had answered long ago. What is art? Who gets to decide what art is? Who is allowed to make it?
An important part of collage work is how it tells stories in a torn and fractured way that no other art form can quite touch. It can be an artist's way of sorting thoughts and memories, a way of combining them, and a way of connecting them to new ideas and philosophies. We look for art that is beautiful, painful, emotion-filled, gory, devastating, aesthetic, clever, and political. Above all, it is crucial that the message behind the work is significant and purposeful.
