Collage artist Micheline Gingras is a collector and composer. Images torn from magazines and newspapers gather in boxes, files, and piles until they inspire or challenge the artist to move. "My reason and intellect organize the bits of ideas and images that surface, now becoming my painter's palette." Then the purpose and process of collage begins.
The collection of work in this book, created during the last two years (2018–2020), bravely looks at the daily tragedies we encounter in the U.S. today. Isolation, polarization, and dehumanization are difficult to face but the time to do that is now.
