Collage, Assemblage, and Altered Art
Collage is more than a pile of snapshots and a glue stick, so much more! Let Collage, Assemblage, and Altered Art lead the way to a whole new way of creating collage! Artist and author Diane Maurer-Mathison begins the book with an overview of collage, including history, tools, and techniques, plus materials and principles of colour and design. Then it s on to the collage projects, from traditional layered paper- and glue creations to photomontage to mixed media to digital collage. Next comes assemblage, with three- dimensional objects added to the collage mix to produce memory and shadow boxes, shrines, art dolls, jewellery, and sculpture. The last section, on altered art, reveals how collage and assemblage techniques can be used to transform ordinary objects into extraordinary art. Detailed step-by-steps and clear instructions, plus beautiful full-colour photographs of collage, assemblage, and altered art by noted artists, make this the complete reference guide to collage in every dimension.
