Belying his tendency to dress like a banker, Schwitters was one of the great eccentrics of the early modernist period, running a one-man design movement he called Merz (named after the tail end of a sign reading Kommerz visible through his apartment window) throughout a life spent on the run, in exile from Nazi Germany. Schwitters’ main legacy is his apeshit use of collage, gluing together random found objects that somehow form an intensely introspective, personal viewing experience: Merz Difficult, Kurt Schwitters 1942. Trompe l'oeil, Salvador Dalí, 1950.

I am from Brisbane, Australia, and I’ve lived in Brooklyn for the past four years. Is there anywhere in Brooklyn around you studio that you get away to? My studio is at the intersection of Morgan and Grand Avenues in Bushwick, which is perfect for me in terms of location but sadly not really serviced by cafes or lunch spots. I usually bring food to the studio or cycle somewhere to pick up something quick, like the little taqueria at Los Hermanos tortilla factory on Starr Street. Dizygotheca Elegantissima, Leisl Pfeffer, 2015. Dani, Patrick Bremer. Inspired by Derek Riggs Iron Maiden album covers and figurative painters such as Lucien Freud or Francis Bacon, the very talented Patrick Bremer was mainly known for his portraits paintings, but now his beautiful collages have also brought him recognition.

He received his BA in painting from Wimbledon School of Art in London and has been awarded the De Laszlo Foundation award for his portraiture by The Royal Society of Portrait Painters. He works part time work as a secondary school teacher as helping children with artwork inspires and influences his work. He creates his extraordinary collage work with layers of collaged magazines and books on paper and chooses strips and chunks of paper that fit the image both visually but also textually. The Castle Dani. Arkansas 3, Patrick Bremer. Image 9 of 12, Michael Albert. Image 11 of 12, Michael Albert. Egyptian Landscape, Paulele Beach House, 2016. My Grade 9's recently finished their landscape collages. I wanted a landscape lesson that wasn't drawing-based and I also wanted to use up a bunch of old magazines and scraps of coloured construction paper, so this project was the perfect solution.

It uses minimal materials to get quite lovely results. Students were required to create a landscape that incorporated a background, middle ground and foreground. For the paper, they had to use a combination of ripped and cut (with scissors) paper to create contrasting shapes and a variety of textures. For inspiration, you could show students the work of California collage artist Eileen Downes. Memories of Blue Days, Geoffrey Howard. Collage IV, Marina Witt.
