18 art quotes about Collage found | Share this page of quotes about Collage on Facebook

Collage-making, for me, is basically an act of painting, allowing me to indulge in an appetite for immediacy. (Abe Ajay)

-made in 1914...
These collages were static symmetrical constructions, porticos with pathetic vegetation, the gateway to the realm of dreams. They were done with colored paper in black, orange or blue dye plates. Although cubist painting interested me very much, not a trace of their influence was to be found in my collage. (Hans Jean Arp)

The creation of an art collage from the soul is an inner journey that allows your soul to speak to you. Your soul's voice can be heard through the images, feelings and insights that surface... (Kathleen Carrillo)

Engraving takes such a bloody long time. Sometimes you feel you've almost ground to a halt... That's why I need to be working on collages at the same time. I work on those much faster. (Anne Desmet)

The collage/construction serves as my model for the oil painting. In my early years of doing this process, I used to destroy the collage but now I preserve all of my collages because I consider them to be as important as the paintings. (Gary T. Erbe)

Collage is the noble conquest of the irrational, the coupling of two realities, irreconcilable in appearance, upon a plane which apparently does not suit them. (Max Ernst)

The reason for [adding mixed media and collage] is that I like the effect of the inner coupled with the outer. I feel it is a good combination to take the viewer into, for example, depth and richness of color, totally abstract, to a recognizable element such as what the collage imparts. It adds interest and dimension, and thus enriches the work. (Bela Fidel)

Rapid-collage prevents any elevating movement toward a fixed goal. To 'be nowhere' is to let oneself be. (Josh Goldberg)

I have titles floating around in my head; I have sculptures floating around in my head. It's like a collage. (Damien Hirst)

Collage is like a hall of mirrors. Every direction you look, you see something different and visually stimulating. (Nita Leland)

But when I worked on a painting I would do it from a drawing but I would put certain things I was fairly sure I wanted in the painting, and then collage on the painting with printed dots or painted paper or something before I really committed it. (Roy Lichtenstein)

You get a linear quality from collage that is more rapid than the swiftest drawn line. (Conrad Marca-Relli)

A layered printed image is torn indiscriminately to reveal parts of the image that lay just below its surface... In this way the images are brought together in a rather jarring and forceful manner, with often marvelous results. (Richard Misiano-Genovese)

Collage is the twentieth century's greatest innovation. (Robert Motherwell)

Nothing as drastic an innovation as abstract art could have come into existence, save as the consequence to a most profound, relentless, unquenchable need. (Robert Motherwell)

When I became tired of oil painting at one stage, I used collage and this proved to be influential in the design and composition of my later works. (Myfanwy Pavelic)

Collage is a natural for the acrylic medium... gels, matte medium as an adhesive, standard-body acrylics, fluid acrylics, acrylic gouache or watercolor, metallics and interference colors – anything can happen and usually does. (Stephen Quiller)

In collage you're doing it in stages so you're not actually doing it right there. You first of all draw it on the paper, then you cut it up, then you paste it down, then you change it, then you shove it about, then you may paint bits of it over, so actually you're not making the picture there and then, you're making it through a process, so it's not so spontaneous. (Paula Rego)
