contemporary collage artist
with social commitment
I am Judith Pelgrom, an Amsterdam based collage artist with a fascination for creating visually rich pieces, with an emphasis on details and patterns. Inspired by decades of living and working abroad, my practice has developed since the mid-1980s to become an extension of my keen obsession with cultural trend and social commitment, fueling a passion for translating my observations through collage art.
Creating either independent or commissioned artwork consists of immersing myself into a visually dynamic process.Every story begins with a discussion; sometimes this is directly with my subject, other times in the form of a conversation with a client. It's
essential for me to understand their story, and what they would like the artwork to represent. I am able to start the creative process, from which the composition within the artwork becomes a new whole from the constituent parts.
