The art of assemblage became more prominent during the early 20th century and regained its popularity post World War II. DaSylva reproduces photographic imagery by assembling cut or torn magazine paper. Once these bits and pieces come together, they become more symbolic and meaningful as another reality paints itself through material to appear as the subject of important matters.
Dominic DaSylva Artist Statement Growing up around art, I’ve touched on many mediums. I find collage to be the most fun and free, and I love the effect it has. My art is made up of thousands of tiny recycled magazine pieces which create fun and mesmerizing imagery. Anything I can imagine or see, I can make. That’s what I like about art.
