The art of collage
The newest show at the local Arts Council Gallery is a series of collage works by Karen Kroeker. Here she is, offering an explanation of the origins and history of collage.
Many of Kroeker's works include an image of a woman who I thought might be Virginia Woolf. It turns out the figure is a depiction of herself which Kroeker keeps going back to. Karen offered some explanatory notes on the changing orientation of this figure in an article published in the Peace Arch News.
