Handmade Papercollages by Kollasch
"Collage N (aka Kollasch) delivers a steady stream of thoughtful cut and paste collages. His translation of architecture into geometric fragments often results in dense collages.
The landscapes presented are utopian, thick pastiches uf humanity illustrated by the buildings we live and work in.
In other work, he collages folded paper into works. In Faltage - Schwarze Faltung, the black folded paper becomes an object of veneration when set to a photograph of a man in a martial arts pose. Like his collages of architecture, at play here is an astute understanding of shape and composition."

Folded paper in different geometric figures.
Kollasch arranges the folds like the collection of butterflies in a showcase of an entomologist. In the juxtaposition of the individual folds to each other, the individuality of each "folder" becomes particularly clear through its form, color and materiality.
In this series, I explore the question of what architectural parts and elements we might use to build spaceships to fly us to Mars in the event of an apocalypse. The figures are made up of various pieces of paper from buildings, facades, walls and windows.

The collages are composed of many individual paper motifs.
In this series the windows and glass facades of the buildings are replaced by colorful monochrome surfaces.

I love to tell stories. In this series, I create landscapes that belong to the fantastic literature and are characterized by associative imagery and experimental narrative technique.
As a basis for this new series i used pages of color illustrations from the famous german Tierlexikon: Brehms Tierleben.
The animal paintings are from fantastic animal painters from the 19th/20th century, which i redesigned and alienated in terms of content, meaning or humour using various techniques.
