American conceptual artist Robert Alan has created a stunning gallery of paper art, digital collages, photo-manipulated works, the best I have ever seen. Digital collages by Robert Alan start off as a traditional paper collage (magazines and such), some get painted over with water color, then they get scanned and photo shopped. If the artist finds them too dull (which he does very often) then he might just print them out again cut them up and repeat the process. Some of these are 10 years old and have been scanned altered cut and colorized many many times. Robert Alan says – “all my art is created through the medium of madness that lives in a box in my mind feeding on dreams and nightmares and occasionally gummy bears too.”

Robert Alan mostly uses scissors (and he cuts veeeeery sloooowly) and a cutting board. He says he knows the point of collage is to see those uneven edges, the edges have to be very clean. The result – delicate seamless work with
fabulous screaming colors.
