Rosemary Rae
San Diego, California, USA


My collages, assemblages and small artist books are curated from found materials and integrate type and images from magazines, discarded books and vintage ephemera. My interest in typography reaches from my professional design work into more experimental projects. My collage work explores the relationship between space and color, and celebrates the play and energy of random compositions across a page.
