“Black Orpheus and Voodoo Funk” (2011): Artists have been making collages for hundreds of years, and the medium is alive and well in contemporary art. The term derives from the French “colle” meaning “glue”, although the word applies to plenty of forms besides the two-dimensional, including music, literary, architecture, and film. Enter Victoria Topping, a London and Berlin-based artist whose own interpretation of collage involves Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, and traditional drawing & painting. Her work blends musical themes – disco lyrics, floating notes, LP covers – with a distinctly modern flair. Awesome and vibrant stuff from an artist to keep an eye on: http://cargocollective.com/victoriatopping
