Colour Me A Collage
Making a collage is so much fun to do, and it is good for the mind, art stimulates your senses, emotions and your brain.
The art of collage began as early as 200 BC around the time paper was invented in China. Collage means to glue, and most Collage involves a range of textiles, paper, and textures cut and stuck together to make a picture.
In the early 20th century two very famous artists Pablo Picasso and George Braque began the practice of making a collage as a way to explore abstract ideas on relative time and space. It was part of their very own art movement called Cubism. Cubism looked at how and why reality is the way it is and challenged how we perceive it.
Collage is the hallmark of the abstract and modern art movement and was a feature of Picasso and Braques’ cubist works. Collage from the early 20th century explores symbolism, colour, ideas on how the universe works and human perceptions.
