“Using collage, creating a new image that can provoke, irritate, surprise, or delight (often all at once) is as easy as that. The key is in the juxtaposition. A pop star on a holy cross. PinRup girls morphing into fish fingers. Skyscrapers dwarfed by flowers. To cut out images and make them into something new entirely, drastically altering their original connotations, the collage artist needs to be just a wee bit disrespectful. The act of cutting through the paper bodies of models, pop stars, and politicians to create a new image comes close to the urge shared by people the world over to scratch out, cut at, or draw obscenities over the cheerful faces featured in advertisements or school book pictures. For an artist, eager to make a statement, collage is the perfect angry art form.”
