Elisabeth Corvey


In addition to painting, drawing, and etching, Elisabeth Corvey, artist from Dusseldorf, also focuses on the medium of collage. As she adheres elements in her pictorial constructions, she continues in an extremely individual way an artistic tradition that, especially since the Cubists, has become an influential medium of the 20th century. She works solely with magazines; she rips outs – literally, as she does not scissors or knives – her visual vocabulary from these discarded and otherwise useless informational print media, although the selection of the motifs is made taking the composition of the work into consideration. Thanks to her enormous collage works, Elisabeth Corvey has achieved a unique position in contemporary artistic analysis of this visual medium.
