Victoria Cecé was born in Spain and has been residing in London for the past 10 years. With a BA (Hons) in Graphic Design, and working for 8 years as a freelance designer, it's no surprise she has successfully turned her hand to the art of collage. Victoria has a distinct and recognizable style. Her ability to deconstruct and recreate images is unique. Her clean, crisp backgrounds accentuate her painterly approach to collage and her wonderful use of colour.

“I must have flowers, always, and always" as Monet Said, 2022
Analog collage, 16.5 x 23.4 in.

I engage in the art of composing, deconstructing, reshaping, and painting with paper. Collage has become my artistic playground—a way to explore my curiosity and solve creative briefs. I enjoy using collage in unexpected ways, which lets me dive into a wide range of topics and subjects. This makes my body of work really diverse, while the constant pursuit of creating depth remains a unifying factor achieved through the integration of textile textured cuttings, becoming an inherent part of my artistic style.

As other disciplines, collage goes hand in hand with social context, having the most intimate relationship with its sources they are a reflection of its changes. Thus sources become a constant play of limitations and inherent quotations to adopt or transform in this practice, evidently adapting every speech to accommodate new circumstances.

I tend to generate ideas working in series and I do tons of piles. I construct the meanings and palettes relating images to visualize every piece allowing cohesion and restricting myself to commit in time and concept with the process. Once the material is sorted and in front of a subject I wonder what intrinsically makes it. When I find that essential quality, mark or detail that cannot be removed I go around in shapes, to celebrate it.

I feel compelled towards lively things and topics as subjects and the idea of transforming and embellishing, to provide them with some sort of fantastical movement. Although I love papers and their tactile qualities the idea comes first, afterwards the hunt for appropriate material commences. I source digitally for specific topics and physically for textures and serendipity.

For Your Viewing Pleasure

An additional selection of works by artists we have our eyes on.

Samuel Levi Jones is inspired by questions of authority, representation, and recorded history. The artist is known for challenging historical and contemporary power structures through the act of taking apart "source" material, generating new perspectives from which to grapple with society’s ongoing ignorance and apathy. Jones’s practice centers on physically undoing objects associated with systems of power and control, often rearranging deconstructed books into grid-like compositions that expose their flaws and question their assumed command of the truth.

Donny Bradfield (b. 1992, St. Louis), known as Shabez Jamal, is an interdisciplinary artist based in New Orleans, LA. Their work, rooted in still portraiture, experimental video, and performance, interrogates physical, political, and social-economical space by using queerness, not as a means of speaking about sexuality but as a catalyst to challenge varying power relations.

Matthew King eschews fixed definitions and distinctions in punchy mixed media artworks, in which he crosses painting with sculpture, abstraction with representation, art with the utilitarian, and high with low. He works with shaped panels of pressed wood, or with squares and rectangles of aluminum. King adorns the surfaces of these with boldly painted zigzag patterns, recalling Op Art compositions, or with stripes and geometric blocks of color, sometimes combined with cut-apart images culled from vintage advertisements, newspapers, and magazines.

Jon Rollins (b. 1991) creates layered abstract works through intervals of collaging materials collected from his studio practice and daily life, drawing, and erasure using paint and a razor. He has exhibited work in New York, Madrid, Basel, Miami Beach, and throughout North Carolina.

Paul Insect’s sharp-edged images combine all the absurdism of Dada with the sleekness of modernism, yielding surreal renderings that point playfully at the dark underbelly of life. In the 1990s, Insect became known for his witty stencil and spray painted works, before transitioning to the gallery scene with color-drenched canvases, teetering between tradition and something far more modern. Insect effortlessly channels chaos in such clean lines.

WERK No.20: Ginza: The Extremities of the Printed Matter

This issue documents the variety of experimental processes used to produce this magazine since it was launched in 2000. To create this 332-page issue, ink and oils were collected from the actual printing process and used to stain the books to create the unique colours and textures. This issue was released in 2012, in conjunction with an exhibition on the magazine at Japan’s ginza graphic gallery. The copies were consciously left on a pallet in the printing factory exposed to the heat, dust, and humidity.


Pacifico Silano: Photography's Poetics - Yale School of Art

In this clip from Pacifico Silano's Visiting Artist Lecture in Photography, the artist shares the varied nature of his practice, which simultaneously investigates quiet, gestural elements, the history of images and image-making, notions of masculinity, and the textures of prints alongside a multi-layered approach to the installation of work.


Sufjan Stevens - Javelin

Sufjan Stevens, a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter from Petoskey, Michigan, is celebrated for his lyrically rich and instrumentally diverse music, often exploring themes of faith and family. His work represents a confluence of indie pop and folk, infused with influences from experimental electronic music to the minimalist works of Steve Reich and Philip Glass.
