Editorial Reviews

Life Magazine
Collage is artistic monkey business which is quietly threating to become a fad. If it succeeds in this it will be, like Dadaism, another harmless little hoax perpetrated upon the art-loving public.

What People are saying about this

Wavy Gravy
Master collage artist Winston Smith snips glorious and terrible tree flesh from the magazines of our mind and pastes it. A mind is a terrible thing to paste. And Glorious!
Jello Biafra
We live in a hi-tech robber-baron era as toxic and vicious as the rise of the industrial revolution...The relentless bombardment of tabloid anti-news and advertising overkill numbs and isolates us from each other and our own humanity. We are told we are not a community, but a marketplace...Is plucking someone else's creation from its original context...a legitimate way to communicate? In an age where it gets harder to tell where the cartoon ends and real life begins, the answer is a billboard YES.
