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.
Growing up in a very creative environment, with a father as sculptor, painter and a mother as a writer, I was stimulated to develop my own creativity. And I learned in an early age to look with an open mind to the world and to be critical on any injustice done to people.
Creating any independent artwork consists of immersing myself into a visually dynamic process. I am able to start the creative process, from which the composition within the artwork becomes a new whole from the constituent parts.
