And for that I need your help.

If you want to contribute, please get in contact. The best works will be printed and shown in a public gallery space, and some of them will be featured on www.cutoutcam.com.

Send me your best artwork/s, the title and the year in which it was created, to stephan.petzl@gmail.com.

For how long are you working with collage art now and what was your reason to become a collage artist?

I became a collage artist through necessity. Whilst studying to become a graphic designer (now my day job) I started the practice of collecting visual stimuli. It got to the point where I had to do something with the hundreds of folders I’d acquired of magazine cuttings, comics, books, newspapers, photos, etc. At first I worked purely in sketchbooks slowly these developed into huge compositions. That was 13 years ago.

I’ve been working with collage since highschool, I remember I would make these large elaborate images out of tiny pieces of ripped up color paper. I was always good at drawing, but with collage the process seemed more intuitive and natural.

I did it because I was always a misfit and was a total failure in any other “normal” activities.
I approached each new work, as if time does not exist, with an attitude of exploring the magic space, as if it was an exciting adventure. These times I never set myself a limit for being happy. I lived each collage as if it is a breathtaking adventure, so time was not an issue. Infact, it is as if each time I would step out of time. Sometimes it took years for bigger collages, sometimes it took months for smaller ones. I felt like I really live, not just exist in those long moments. I changed elements around constantly, until I come to a point where nothing can be changed – the final composition, when a collage is like a being on its own.

My best collages I did before I began to exibit. It was like sailing into the mist of the open sea with no map. When I began to exibit and all of a suddenly there were many propositions to exhibit, the quality of work went down. I became aware of time. Gallerists refered to work as “pieces”. I thought of my collages as “beings”. So I decided to do completely different things, though applying collage principles. I can not be a part of a modern system, of commercial art. It is a spiritual death.

I have been working with collage since 2009, so about four years now.
While I was studying at university (The Arts of London), my love for layouts and putting things together in a surreal way really developed – it was what I was naturally good at and known for in my class. I really enjoy the freedom it gave me. You can be extremely minimal or incredibly complex in your composition, and the final product can still look interesting either way!

I’ve always had an element of collage in my work, about five years ago my focus shifted to a more collage heavy style. I’ve always enjoyed taking one thing and making it into something else.

I have been working in collage for at least ten years, but it has been a reoccurring part of my practice for much longer. Collage/Montage/Assemblage/Mash-up/borrowing etc. is part of our culture. Especially with digital files. Whether it is in music or fashion or literature or art, borrowing is a major part of making.

Ich arbeite seit ungefähr acht Jahren in der Technik der Collage. Vorher war ich Malerin und habe einfach ab und an Dinge in meine Bilder eingeklebt. Irgendwie wurden es immer mehr und mehr, […] bis ich die Farbe einfach weggelassen habe und nur noch die Collage da war.

At the beginning, it seemed like a good exercise to develop my composition skills. With the time it became a hobby, an activity to express myself. I like the idea of taking random elements to create something new; it’s like giving a second chance to the images and elements that I cut out.

Last two years, I have started to do Collage from the hobby. I find that this kind of art make me enjoy in finding picture and learn more in their stories behind. I feel that there is a large space for imagination. There is no border between each picture although those photos come from different places. It makes me feel that there is always something new.
