Artist’s statement: I have dedicated many years to working with this technique. After a period of experimentation with large format digital collage, I am currently working manually: I have returned to scissors, glue, and the exploration of various materials. At the moment, I work in small, medium and large format, but always apply handmade collage […]
Capturing the ephemeral moments. Assembling the memories into an album. As time goes by, the remains will become the layer of soil. Preferably returning to one little tree someday.
Artist Statement: I make collages out of paper. I use auction catalogs, with displays of jewels, silver, and gold antique pieces or reproductions of paintings and drawings that I repurpose for my own use. Usually, I have some preconceived ideas about the colors and the composition. Sometimes I successfully execute the idea right off. But […]
Artist’s Statement: I make collages of beachtrash and vintage magazines. It started during a peaceful moment at a trashy Spanish beach where I put, without thought, some pieces of plastic together. This co-incidental finding led to my project TrashWorks. I often combine the beachtrash with my other love: vintage magazines. The saltwashed colours of the […]
Artist’s statement: Collage undresses the darkness with a mirror’s secret undertow. It’s a dance done on burning kites while dreaming at the speed of light.

Artist’s statement A mesh of vintage consumerism, post-war sophistication and mid-century ephemera, Rizk’s work explores nostalgia and surveys the essential and singular visual niche of collage in this age of mash-ups and remixes. By reinterpreting and rearranging visual history with weathered imagery, highly textured surfaces, design-inspired compositions and occasional droll humour, the artist aims to […]
Artist’s statement: These four collages can be viewed separately. They can also be shown as one 4-part piece as seen through a four pane glass window, with the two blue and white pieces on the top – sky; and the two earth color collages below – earth, with a narrow space between each piece, as […]
Artist’s statement: I am drawn to subjects about socially transmitted beliefs, widely repeated cultural themes and mores. My work focuses on the narratives evolving naturally from the subconscious as images unfold; dialogues on events taking place around me or a moment just about to happen. Inspired by pictures from women’s wrestling and commodity culture, and […]
Artist’s statement: I think the collages are poetry without words. Sometimes I contribute my collages with my poems to poetry magazines, or publish on my site. My collages are made by ephemera, washi, watercolour, charcoal and screenprint on paper. ailes de la chanson #1, ailes de la chanson #2, under the weather and telepathic savarin […]

As undefined forms become cut up, glued and juxtaposed new variations are crafted […]
