Cut, Paste, Shop, Repeat Contest

To celebrate the opening of Kolaj Magazine’s Online Shop, we are holding a contest. The winner will receive a $100 credit towards items in the Kolaj shop or ARTSHOP. In the course of publishing Kolaj, we’ve noticed a number of collages that touch on the theme of consumerism and it seems fitting, as we launch an online shop for the magazine, that this be the theme of the contest. Thank you to everyone who submitted an entry.

And the winner is….Brittany Ellis

brittany-ellis-warhols-wounds-webBrittany Ellis of Lake Forest, California, USA is the winner of the Cut, Paste, Shop, Repeat Contest. She submitted the original collage (image right), Warhol’s Wounds (18″x14″; acrylic, collage, fabric, foil; 2015). About the work she told us, “Warhol’s Wounds represents the legacy of Andy Warhol. Andy Warhol became known for his impact in Pop art and consumerism. A soup can not only became a beautiful piece of art, but an American staple. Campbell’s Soup is comfort, American history, and became the evolutionary advancement in art. Although Warhol was known for his paintings, he also was known for his wounds as well. Warhol’s Wounds also depicts the lengths to which some would go in the name of art. After being shot by Valerie Solanas in June 1968, Warhol became cautious and superstitious. Although Warhol lived after being pronounced clinically dead, his wounds were always with him and killed his carefree spirit. ‘It’s not often that I shoot somebody. I didn’t do it for nothing..,’ said Solanas in court.”
