Cutting The Edge
Kristin Leigh Knoll is a 25 year-old collage and mixed media artist currently living in Brooklyn, NY. She re-purposes old textbooks, board games, letters, magazine clippings, paint chips, playing cards and even discarded collages of her own into something new. Elements of embroidery and stitching in her collages create the hand-crafted look of paper-quilting. The constant search for interesting materials and the problem solving nature of combining those together to create something cohesive is what keeps her inspired every day.
Kevin O’Dowd is a 25 year-old minimalist collage artist based in
Austin, TX. He combines imagery from outdated encyclopedias, science textbooks, magazine clippings, and found thrift store art to create surrealist pieces inspired by dreams and subconscious states. The themes of nature, spirituality and humor in his work are meant to invoke a sense of child-like wonder and new age positivity.
