  17. 17. MAZUKA Mazuka currently lives, studies and produces your artworks in SãoCarlos (São Paulo, Brazil). Seeks to express the tension that exists in thedymanic balance between harmony and conflict, through theressignificance of images and colors. Mazuka believes in the socialconstruction of reality, and the social assignment of meaning to things inthe world, as reflected in his artworks in a procedure that simultaneouslyresignifies, exposes and controverts ideas and values. “At the same timewe have our intimate moments of creative glimpses, we are alsoimmersed in a society that’s increasingly global that, on the one handforces us in a position of passive bestialized, on the other gives us smallspaces to manifest our views. Our artwork is one of this ‘privileged’spaces”. Mazuka atualmente mora, estuda e produz seus trabalhos na cidade de São Carlos, SP. Procura expressar a tensão que existe no equilíbrio dinâmico entre a harmonia e o conflito, através da ressignificação de imagens e cores. Mazuka acredita na construção social da realidade e na atribuição social de sentido às coisas do mundo, o que se reflete em suas obras em um procedimento que ao mesmo tempo ressignifica, expõe e questiona ideias e valores. “Ao mesmo tempo que temos nossos momentos íntimos de lampejos criativos, também estamos mergulhados numa sociedade cada vez mais globalizada que, se por um lado nos força a uma posição de bestialização passiva, por outro nos oferece pequenos espaços para manifestarmos nossos pontos de vista. A nossa arte é um desses espaços ‘privilegiados’”. 13

  28. 28. CORY PEEKE Cory W. Peeke was born in Sturgis, Michigan in 1968. He receivedhis BFA in Fine Arts from Kendall College of Art and Design and his MFAfrom the University of Idaho. His works are included in the permanentcollections of Eastern Oregon University, Lockhaven University, and theInternational Museum of Collage, Assemblage and Construction. Coryserves as the Director of the Nightingale Gallery and Associate Professorof Art & Art History at Eastern Oregon University in La Grande, Oregon,USA. I’m a collage maker for much the same reason I’m a curator – I loveimages. This affection has led me to collect remnant imagery; the largelyignored and seemingly inconsequential bits of ephemera that once had apurpose, still have a presence, but now idle in disuse. I combine, layer,juxtapose, glue, tape and re-contextualize these bits and pieces of detritusin order to reincarnate and recharge them. Through the process of collagethese snippets of the past combine to become at once something fresh andfamiliar. They both exemplify and explore the duality that is the transient,disposable nature of our culture as well as the necessity to createtradition and solidify a cultural continuity. 24

  69. 69. JOSIE BESZANT Based in the Yorkshire Dales in the UK Josie has been anartist/gallery owner here for the last 20 years. Her work takes discarded objects from the past and throughreworking them attempts to speak about the present and future. It looksat decay and preservation, makes connections between people who havelong gone from this world and our current experience of the world.The work sometimes appears to have a simple narrative meaning but acorner gives way to something else and you realise there are layers ofmeaning and metaphor, and a line walked between darkness and light.Josies work has been exhibited widely in the UK and has also featured inexhibitions and collections in the USA and New Zealand. 65

  78. 78. DADA VFC Im a dizzy bard, a wild dreamer and a clumsy alchemist... My name is Viorel Florin Costea (vfc) and I live in Moinesti - DadaCity, Romania - the place where Tristan Tzara, the founder of DadaMovement, was born in 1896. So, my nickname is dada vfc, k? I love to create collages and all kinds of paintings, including digitalpaintings. I really enjoy playing with forms and colors on canvas, on woodor on my laptop. I spend a lot of time mixing chromatic wishes and desireswith imagination and fantasy. 74

  84. 84. MONGObì Mongobì is pseudonym of Bibbiana Tanina Mele. I am an Italianartist, and I was born in Sardinia island, but Im living and working inFlorence. I have attended the Art Institute in Nuoro, and I graduated as aMaster of Arts. Then I moved to Florence, and made studies at the Facultyof Architecture and then at the Faculty of History of Art graduating inMuseology. After that I have specialized in Contemporary Art. Generallymy creativity is mostly oriented toward the collage, photography,drawing, painting and sculpture. Much of my work revolves around theidea of waste and loss, poor materials. Im a manual collagist. With thistechnique I want to affect reality, shape it, mold it as like it. With collages Ialways start from reality but I discussing boundaries, I change it. I rebirththe reality, I rage on her with a cutter. The practice of collage is a eulogy ofthe fragment, and the residual. In the same time is a desperate search forcompleteness. 80

  95. 95. BOB SCOTT I am a graphic illustrator and collage artist from Richmond Virginia.I began making collages for fun when I moved to New York City aftercollege. My collages then were mainly custom cover art for mix tapesthat I sent to my girlfriend and other friends that I missed. My collages are a combination of both art and archeology. I slice upvarious resources including vintage paperback book covers, and theimages and ads that are buried within the pages of the many oldmagazines that I have collected over the years. By taking these eye- catching images and type from their originalformat and reinterpreting them in collages my goal is to give them arenewed aesthetic and revived visual life. 91

  106. 106. GABRIELA KOSTESKY En el año 1996, junto a mi mochila comencé un viaje, encontrandotrayectos de dibujos, óleos, tintas…, donde dos años más tarde meenfrenté con un collage llamado “Desestructura”, obteniendo de su manomi primer premio. En este camino esotérico, habitado por transparencias, cartones,tules y papeles de diarios, entre otros visitantes ocasionales, mis collagesconstituyen un escenario en el que actores rústicos, suaves, antojadizos yobedientes acuerdan transmitir particulares sensaciones.La investigación y el estudio constante han sido mi premisa en dichorecorrido. A través de exposiciones y concursos la comunicación mutua con elinterlocutor me llevó a un cautivante juego donde el observador y elobservado dejamos de ser los mismos en cada mirada. En el año 2006,esas miradas lograron que fuera seleccionada nuevamente. En la búsqueda de uno y del otro hace pocos años me introduje enel mundo del Cine con Los Retratos, teniendo como herramienta unamixtura de técnicas que me permitieron conocer profundamente laesencia humana y , como el Dr. Jeckyll y Mr. Hyde, la dualidad del Hombre. Al cautivarlos recorreremos juntos mi mundo... 102

  114. 114. KATRIEN DE BLAUWER Emotions have always been the driving force and mainconsideration in what I do and make. I am also strongly drawn to theuncomfortable in human emotion, like pain, sorrow, loss, desire. It’s aboutlife and death, what we are, what we signify, how we are loved. I like the directness of pictures and their brute presence. With myidiosyncratic, condensed cuts and pastes I try to relate a story of my own.In doing so, I find, often unwittingly, new meanings and associations,which also has a therapeutic effect on me. It’s a process of finding my ownlanguage and listening to it. Where must we hide when it comes from inside - J. Taylor 110

  146. 146. CHRISTOS KOURTOGLOU Im an illustrator from Athens, Greece. I work with the IndyvisualsDesign Collective. I make collage work, both handmade and digital. Iusually work with old sewing magazines of the 70s and 80s butsometimes I combine them with new glossy paper cuts and I like to addink and acrylics in the pieces. Im always trying to find the right balancebetween these materials. The mix of the old and new fascinates me.Usually there are figures involved, Im interested in all the distortions ahuman, and not only, can have. My digital work has the same structure, Iuse scanned images, painted papers and make the composition inphotoshop, giving them a handmade feel. I love both types of work, Icombine them a lot, I think graphic design can be very artistic. 142

  157. 157. FEMKE VAN DER RIJST I was born in 1982 in Utrecht, Holland where I still live today and amworking on preparing for my first solo exhibition. For the last 5 years almost all my cut & paste has been self-portrait.My work is handmade and non-digital. When I started making collages itwas about expressing myself. In a sense collages worked as therapy.Nowadays it’s about the aspiration to create freely and share thatoutcome with the world. I work from a place of spontaneity, intuition andfantasy. I just love a puzzle, making images and words work; discoveringalignment where there was none, gives me such satisfaction. Call me crazy but it is my I strong believe that everything I bringtogether, the meeting of lines and the perfect blending of images, is meantto be. The blueprint of it is already here. All I need to do is see thealignment and glue it together. 153

  190. 190. K MACKOWICK Born and raised in the blue collar oasis of Pittsburgh, PA amiddense green canopies, five hundred bridges, deep frozen arctic wintersand sweltering tropical summers, K Mackowick’s art and life have beenshaped by both their beloved home and locales thousands of miles away. Creating fantastical depictions out of the intriguing residualenergies of other times and places captivates Mackowick, who drawsinspiration from nature, the elements, cultural icons and archetypes,apocalyptic imagery, colors, adventure, the road, and the emotionssurrounding people and relationships. Amongst everything else. 186

  198. 198. ARI CHÁVES CHACÓN She was Born in Cuernavaca, Mexico in 1988 and studied Spanishlitera-ture. While she was studied, disco-vered a huge interest in otherartistic disciplines, besides literature, like photography & films. From theinter-vention in photographs came out the idea of making collage, as ahobby, and later born the idea of making collage with just old magazines& news-papers. Inside her artistic “politic”, she likes the old school way ofmaking collage, just with paper magazines, scissors and glue because“paper gives a unique texture & also a lot of melancholy”. 194
