Via Keller

This ability to harness the unexpected and nonsensical makes collage a lot of fun. Impromptu metaphors take flight and inner landscapes are coaxed into the light of day….

So says Via Keller about collage making. And her work is technically beautiful. And although all of the work is not to my liking, a lot of it is extraordinary. Ideas are efficient. Images are not random. There is an intelligence behind each piece. My major criticism is that all the pieces fit into what I can only describe as the non-gravity vision of collages. Everything is in a kind of whirlpool of impressions. And although this is certainly one type of collage (perhaps the most popularly used) it is not the only kind. Still the work is wonderful. In order to see the work in more detail you will have to go to her sight.
