This book features thirty contemporary artists together with a short profile of each and their collage artworks. There's a good diversity of work that are quite fun to look at. It's interesting to see what type of artwork people can come up with by cutting and pasting different photographs collected and mix them into some form of aesthetics using the interplay of shapes, negative space, textures and ideas.
Some of the works are very detailed, some amusing, and others capable of raising eyebrows. One artist Maria Aparicio Puentes used sewing threads for her work. Another artist Kathryn MacNaughton likes to use vintage porn magazines as source materials so there's some nudity in this book.
In addition to just featuring the artists, there was also a task assigned to each. The artists have to come up with a collage using a photograph of two mustache-clad cowboys where one's playing an accordion. The resulting collage is often unexpected and surprising.
It's a great book for those like collages as an art form. I certainly was entertained looking through all the works even though some left me scratching my head.
