What We Love: Collage

Standard


Hollie Chastain

As we prepare for our first Art of Yoga narrative textile workshop that starts TODAY we’re falling in love all over again with collage – paper collage, fabric collage and anything and everything in between. Artists far and wide, widely recognized and little known have used this technique for ages (the impulse to collect, recombine and transform draws on something deeply human, I think). Here is a sampling of what’s possible when you grab some left over fabric or paper, thread a needle or get down and dirty with a glue stick…From the famous French artist Henri Matisse, to textile artist Darcy Falk, to the mixed media artist and educator Deborah Snider to the paper and collage artist Hollie Chastain collage can empower us all!
