THE ART OF COLLAGE By Doug & Gene Meyer

Beautiful, Odd, Sexy, Historic and Glamorous are just some of the types of imagery that we surround ourselves with in our work and living spaces. We have been creating environments built from the layering of pictures on walls for as long as we can remember. We use glue, tape, push pins, nails or whatever means it takes to get an image on the wall. Our latest obsession is Pinterest where we can be found “pinning” some of our favorite images on-line. Here is a glimpse into our world of collage.

Doug's Miami bedroom - the walls are covered with images that all share the color BLUE. It took about 6 months to collect and install the collage (books, magazines and photographs were used). Then they were layered with more images of art and sculpture. The rug in the foreground is one of ours. 

Doug (left) in his New York apartment hallway - the theme was all black & white imagery (done in 2008). Gene (right) in one of his earlier studio's in SoHo - every wall in every room was covered in collage (done in 1995).

A recent New York project we did using 8.5" x 11" sheets of colored paper. We designed over 500 graphic images, printed them out individually and created this collage room. The rug is ours. The Marilyn is by Andy Warhol and the hanging sculpture on the right is by Cristina Lei Rodriguez.
