This piece was inspired by Pablo Neruda's poem "Poetry." The first line of the poem, "And it was at that age..poetry arrived in search of me," launched the concept. Neruda writes about the silent, beautiful calling of art. This piece is an homage to him.
My name is Ariel Kohn, and I am a collage artist based out of Brooklyn, NYC. I think of collage as a form of poetry- using imagery that is familiar and breathing new life into it. Through collage, I try to reshape our perspective on reality, humanism and emotion, and to express visually what often cannot be expressed through written word.
