4th Collagistas Festival - 2017 Milano,

36th participant of CF4 is SCHRIECK from Belgium. He did his first collage in 94 during his ending year of Political Sciences study at the University of Brussels. He has never stopped since. After living in Montreal (Québec), he settled down in France in 2006, deep in the french Alps mountains, as a graphic designer. He made his first collage exhibition in Annecy in 2008. In 2015, the National Air & Space Museum, Smithsonian Institution (Washington DC) awarded and featured one of his collage work. His collage are mostly the result of happy accidents and controlled chaos. But mainly he loves to explore techniques, shapes, styles and colours he never experienced before. He is addicted to the surprise of the final glue!
On this occasion, he will show an exclusive piece of artwork on the theme

Les Recycollages sont issus d'une première étape​ de compostage visuel alimenté par l'accumulation​ d'une multitude d'images et de signes visuels qui​ me tombe sous la main. De ce grand fouillis j'extrais​ au gré du temps des amalgames d'images recomposées tant par le hasard que par une volonte​ préméditée. Cette phase brute est alors suivie​ d’une intervention minutieusement artisanale​ de découpe, assemblage et fixation. Précision​ délibérée pour effacer toutes traces et générer​ par là une image illusoire, une réalité analogique​ trouble qui force à se rapprocher, à scruter, à découvrir et finalement j'espère à s'interroger.
Ce qui m'interesse c'est l'inversion du​ sens premier des composants et produire​ un sens nouveau, inattendu, improbable...​ un sens recyclé.​
