Assemblage and collage are challenging because anyone can do them. We all have a certain point of reference, and we might intuitively put odd things together to make a satisfying object. The minute you take different pieces and try and put them together into an entity, they are transformed. Collage and assemblage allow the artist to explore simultaneously the mysterious spaces between high art and popular culture, text and image, figuration and abstraction, past and present, two and three-dimensional space.
