Kerstin Stephan is an artist from Hoyerswerda, Germany who creates wonderful vintage collage pieces.
“In the media, we see pictures every day. These pictures seem familar, because they correspond with our learned ways of seeing and perceiving. Doing collage, I want to make reality look foreign to us again. Every day experience shall strike the spectator as the extraordinary. Real things from real life will look aloof in collage. This is my opportunity to re-see the world and to make the subconscious visible. I work on and with old paper, mostly from antique books and magazines, which I buy on flea markets or at the antiquarian’s. This is a quite economic way for me to do art.”
