Paper Cut Collages Suspended in Glass by Peter Madden

Peter Madden Magazine Collages

We have featured various types of collages sprinkled throughout our site ranging from dots to pinned or even from musical notes, all being unique in their form and execution. Auckland-based artist Peter Madden creates sculptural installations from cut-out books, magazines and encyclopedias. Each slice is a representation of a fantastical construction once reassembled. Although Madden works from second-hand imagery, he often uses photography as a metaphor when discussing his practice.

‘I’m not a photographer standing on the edge of the world,’ Madden has said. ‘In my work, I’m cutting into a body of knowledge, poetically releasing the images.’ – Peter Madden
