A Collage Series
#86this: Main Menu
By Julie Eisenberg Pitman
I am a collage artist and an openly ecstatic salvager who has always relished in creating new art from cast-offs. My primary interest is how identity pivots around the physical “stuff” that surrounds us, as well as the news and words that we consume. The terrain of my work is the result of an examination of my urban environment, and of the interior self, and focuses on the tenuous meeting of the two elements. Behind the seeming lightness of my subjects, my collages deal with themes of escapism, detritus of the modern world, and loss of information. The abundance of paper source material that exists in discarded collections gives me an endless vocabulary of images for composing my narrative through my dissection and reassembling. My output introduces the need for a multiple-consciousness as conduct to be able to remake the rules that bind our society.
