Collage has edge

13th October 2006 at 01:00
The latest show from the Travelling Gallery - the art gallery in a bus - features the work of seven contemporary artists, all working in collage. Although traditional collage refers to pictures created using a variety of paper materials stuck on to a flat surface, Jaggy-edge challenges that definition and pushes the boundaries.

Artist Ruth Claxton, for instance, uses mirrors and car boot sale finds to make her collage sculptures. Gunilla Klingberg creates kaleidoscope patterns using famous logos and brand names, then videos them.

William Daniels recreates Old Master paintings with amazing collages of torn paper and cardboard.

Jaggy-edge is accompanied by a free mini-catalogue and a well-written, illustrated education pack, which explains collage and the exhibition and is aimed at primary and secondary schools.

The exhibition will travel to West Lothian, East Ayrshire, Aberdeen, Perth and Kinross, Edinburgh and South Lanarkshire between now and December 1.
