A portfolio of Rosemary Rae’s (’18 GD) work was included in issue #28 of Kolaj magazine, with her collage, “Flashback,” featured on the cover. As noted in the magazine, the piece incorporates “a discarded box, scrap papers, foil, music sheet, wood type and images with letter pressed letters. ‘These things could be the items you find in a junk drawer, but here they are, layered and mapped, choreographed on the collage; a cacophony of fragments and styles, somehow coalescing into a pleasant, almost rhythmic, harmonious state.’”
In describing her work for the magazine, Rae states, “My collage work explores the relationship between space and color, and celebrates the play and energy of random compositions across a page.” Her MFA thesis at VCFA, A Lady Red & the Em Dash, explored the work of Emily Dickinson, the multi-hyphenate nature of women’s experience, and more through stunning collage, letterpress, and other means.
