Cutting Edges: James Gallagher On Collage


GESTALTEN's new book CUTTING EDGES, a big fat book on contemporary collage, edited by James Gallagher.  Price: €39,90 | $60,00 | £37,50.

Cutting Edges documents the new heyday of collage in current art and visual culture. Today’s artists, illustrators, and designers are increasingly drawn to this artistic technique by the challenges of seamlessly melding traditional craftsmanship with skilled computer montage. They are not only composing a wide variety of visual elements, but are also deliberately omitting, deleting, and destroying them. This book is an inspiring collection of these unique examples of contemporary collage.

Artists include: Clara Mata, Cless, Jelle Martens, Matthew Rose, Paul Burgess, Dani Sanchis, David Plunkert, Molokid, Eduardo Recife, Lisa Eisenberg, Aprile Elcich, David Wallace, Free Fred, Max-o-Matic and many many other collage artists working across the planet.   MORE INFO HERE.
