Katrien De Blauwer

Some amazing collage work by Katrien De Blauwer. I love them all, its so hard to pick just one. She ha a very good website, with a great section that shows a digitized version of her sketchbook.

Artists Statement:

Emotions have always been the driving force and main consideration in what I do and make. I am also strongly drawn to the uncomfortable in human emotion, like pain, sorrow, loss, desire. It’s about life and death, what we are, what we signify, how we are loved.
I like the directness of pictures and their presence. With my idiosyncratic, 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 own language and listening to it.

"Where must we hide when it comes from inside "- J. Taylor



Eisenstein believed that film montage could create ideas or have an impact beyond the individual images. Two or more images edited together create a "tertium quid" (third thing) that makes the whole greater than the sum of its individual parts. -Montage Theory, Einstein

  1. This work reminds how much I love collage and how powerful it is. Good quote about the 'tertium quid'.
