Eclectix was captivated by a collage work of Lola Dupre’s, on view this weekend at ArtPadSF, in CES Contemporary Gallery’s “room”. Titled Dancing Lady, (above) it is a small collage, full of hundreds of tiny pieces, melded together in painstaking perfection.
Below is a detail we shot, showing the complexity and planning she puts into her works. Lola has a wealth of wonderful art on her site – some color, some much more abstracted, geometric and exploded views. We were partial to the distorted black and white (more dark gray and light gray), surreal works we’ve featured here.
Lola works between several locations in Scotland and her main studio is in Glasgow. The collages are handmade with paper, scissors and glue on wood panels. No digital or computer manipulation is involved in her works.

I use multiple prints of the same image, printed on (typically) A4 and A3 paper. And I also generally print a few different crops of the same image, so that when they are combined in one piece you have several sizes which can be manipulated together. The process itself of mapping out, and sticking down each individual piece does take a long time, I guess my average working time would be between 20 and 30 hours per image. – Via Fecal Face
