Kerstin Stepan is an artist, living close to Hamburg, Germany. She is creating amazing collages and has participated in several exhibitions around the world. As she points out in her site: “In the media, we see pictures every day. These pictures seem familar, because they correspond with our learned ways of seeing and perceiving. Doing collage, I want to make reality look foreign to us again. Every day experience shall strike the spectator as the extraordinary. Real things from real life will look aloof in collage. This is my opportunity to re-see the world and to make the subconscious visible. I work on and with old paper, mostly from antique books and magazines, which I buy on flea markets or at the antiquarian’s. This is a quite economic way for me to do art.” You can enjoy her work in her personnal website.
