Collages

An ecological way to do Art ... ;-)

When I was studying fine arts I wasn't interested in collage... until seeing a Hannah Hoch exposition at Bologna.
Then everything changed... but it took many years before I started making collages. My first series was in 1997 and many of these collages are set in this gallery.
My journey within the collage has been solitary and, as funny as it could be, many years later I knew my influences, as Braque, Picasso, Kurt Schwitters, Braque, Picasso... and also Matisse.
This collages series were made with remaining paper cutting from magazines and newspapers that I used to make a picture album.
