Three-dimensional collages by Italian artist Paola Bazz created using paper recycled from magazines, catalogues, and newspapers. The paper, selected according to thickness, color, and typographic effect, are cut into strips and folded into small or large accordion-like "concertinas" which resemble large pixels. The pixels are placed on a rigid grid and glued onto a cardboard base to form a readable or distorted image, depending on your point of view.
The use of printed paper recycled from magazines, newspapers, and catalogues characterises much of my artistic production and is the central theme of my work. Printed paper, with its enormous power of communication, is reinterpreted, re-used and transformed into new works, questioning both the past lives and future possibilities of this material.
