My King and Queen of collage

..Hannah Hoch and Geoffrey Farmer..

Two stand out collage artists I have recently seen the work of Hannah Hoch a member of Berlins Dada movement in 1920, splicing together images from fashion magazines and hand drawn journals she poked a humorous finger at society at the time. To Geoffrey Farmer a Canadian artist in the now, who combines poetry and social issues, splicing from magazines and using old cut up methods to create his work.

'The latest strain goes further yet with figures that have genuine potential for movement, although they don't always use it, and which imply movement even when they are motionless – namely puppets.'
