"Liz Gordon and I were profoundly impressed with the submissions to this exhibition. A great array of styles and mediums exist within the collage continuum, from richly textured mixed media painting all the way through to sculptural assemblage. Some artists create, destroy, and repurpose their own reassembled raw materials, while others are dedicated to the magic personality of found objects and images. Painting, photography, construction and most especially all the hybrids in between conventional genres are pursued in this collage survey, with artistic intentions from the narrative to the minimal and modernist, landscape, portrait, cultural motif, abstract expressionism, formal poetics, nostalgia, emotion, and technical bravado. Collage is an analog process with exceptional resonance to our digitally-fueled hyper-juxtapositional information overload. The final exhibition is a cogent, elevated, eclectic snapshot of the state of the art of collage." - Shana Nys Dambrot
