Collage, I believe, is the art of fashioning mysterious, absurd, strange, and ineffable scenes out of the quotidian and disregarded products of an enervating culture. To make collage art is to restore to the soul a sense of wonder out of commercial and industrial images that too often divert us from our innate creativity.


Michael Joshua Rowin was born in Manhattan and currently lives in Queens. Since 2003 he has been writing about cinema for various magazines and journals, and he has been making collage art on a daily basis since 2014.
