I have this bitter soft spot for collage art. In the final year of my degree I wanted to do my thesis work in collage, however the old white guy who was my assigned to be my mentor(and would be grading my work) straight up said ‘collage isn’t art’… this guy also repeatedly name dropped having hung out with Andy Warhol so the irony wasn’t lost on me. So because I didn’t want to flunk out I completely changed my thesis work… and hated it.
…now while I still love collage, it always reminds me how I didn’t stand my ground in school.
All these works are by Lidwine Titli.
