19 - LOST IN A DREAM - DAVE EDWARDS - COLLAGE AND BIRO - 1995 by 


FEATURED BY COLLAGE COLLABORATORIUM GROUP – 10th March 2010

I deliberated for some time before uploading any collage (I have lots more) but have decided that collage is the poor man’s Photoshop :) Seriously, if it is acceptable to upload images made in Photoshop by combining existing images, then what is the difference between that and cutting images out of magazines to compose a picture? I suppose strictly speaking this is photomontage, as I use photos from magazines.

I uploaded it as “Fish” but found the original collage and rescanned it (larger) and added the correct title.

PLEASE NOTE … NO DIGITAL EFFECTS WERE USED IN THE MANUFACTURE OF THIS IMAGE … ONLY PAPER, PEN AND GLUE, OR AS THE GROUP ON REDBUBBLE SAY, “STEEL BLADES AND THE POWER OF VISCOSITY”

I am a retired man who enjoys expressing himself in pencils and paints. I have had two solo exhibitions in my home town and I love Redbubble. I get as much pleasure from viewing the works of other artists as from creating my own.

    I totally agree with you about collage and photoshop. This is awesome…looks like a digital image to me!!

  • Hey thanks. You are the first person outside of my family and friends ever to comment on one of my collages. They have been gathering dust for years, but I thought that as I spent many hours indeed creating them I may as well let someone see them. I have another twenty or so. I still have my collection of magazine photos waiting to be cut into shapes, but I lost heart with collage, believing it to be “cheating” somehow.

    Interesting collage Dave. Do you realise that the terms Cutting and Pasting which are now almost always associated with computing, actually referred to exactly what you have done here.

    When I started out as a Technical Author/Writer, Desk Top Publishing software was crude. We had to type the text and cut it into sections, then arrange the sections of cut paper along with cut out images and paste them onto pages which were then sent away to be photocopied and constructed into a book.

    Oh, there is nothing wrong with collage! Anyway you can post a larger image though?

  • If I can find the original picture Luke.

    You might want to submit to this group and see what has been gathered from others of similar scissors and glue persuasion.

  • Thanks for being so helpful. I have now joined the group :)

    Hi Dave,
    This is excellent and this is encouraged at college/uni on Art and Design courses. They are then turned into paintings. I’ve still got my cut and pasted work and the artwork is in my RB pages.
    Cheers Neil

  • I’ve done two paintings from collage images I created. It’s similar to the way many people compose a picture in Photoshop before painting it.

    The advantage of PhotoShop is you can alter the size of each component.!!
