Curiouser and Curiouser

 

  The art of the collage focuses on the union of collected objects that, when placed together, may be interpreted as a new whole. This union invites a different perspective, closer looks at objects we may not spend time analyzing: a milk bottle, an ear, a fan. 

  Clemmie Bache’s abstract work presents these objects out of their usual contexts, expressing an alternative reality that in turn creates a beautiful and quirky escapism. The unconventional placement of these given objects allows the viewer to look further into their beauty in a way that encourages them to be judged separately from their place in our day-to-day lives; their montage possibly expressing concealed, hidden meanings.
