For Noah Travis Phillips
’ 40th birthday they are featured here in Vitamin C+: Collage in Contemporary Art
This PDF publication continues a tradition of the artist gifting themself an artwork or exhibition or feature, and so on, for their birthday.
Over 100 global artists working with collage, as chosen by a team of art experts [and featuring an “Unsolicited Collaboration”] – an indispensable who's who of the most exciting and innovative names working in the medium.
Collage is an artistic language comprising found images, fragmentary forms, and unexpected juxtapositions. While it first gained status as high art in the early twentieth century, the past decade has seen a fresh explosion of artists using this dynamic and experimental approach to image making.
Organized in an A-Z sequence by artist, the book features both well-known collagists ... and a plethora of lesser-known names deserving of greater attention. Taking a broad definition – from analog cut-and-paste compositions and photomontages to digital composed imagery and animations – Vitamin C+
showcases  living artists who employ collage as a central part of their visual-art practice.
