Collage art // Andreia Azevedo

The collage has played a unique and distinctive role in modern art. By implementing mixed media, textures and text, the collage artist is free to create vibrant compositions that land somewhere between the fantastical and allegorical. We spoke to Andreia Azevedo, an artist who captures this meeting point between contemporary and classical art.

salty sour

Words projected, ejected
As though you were unable to contain
The taste of fury, salty sour on your tongue —
good riddance, yes
get rid of your demons —
was it worth putting your
money where your mouth is
only to choke on the bitterness?

ours or theirs

Don’t make us cheerleaders
Don’t demand we look a certain way
Don’t have us wear a suit of patriarchy
Designed for ogling and locker room culture

Don’t demand from us
How we should dress
How we should behave
How we should talk
How we should pleasure
Or whom.
