Steven Gilbar, the force behind Santa Barbara’s acclaimed Speaking of Stories, has applied his creative talents to collage over the past decade. He credits the architect Richard Meier and the pioneering work of German collagist Kurt Schwitters for his early influence. Gilbar’s work is characterized by strong compositional elements, subtle textures and an ever-changing, improvisational approach that brings in acrylic, oil pastels and ink.

My collages are made by layering found papers in an intuitive manner. In the same way that our brains seek to find pattern in randomness, I challenge myself to resolve and balance the disparate elements within a collage that I find delightful in and of themselves. These elements include bold line, broken text and asemic writing, alongside various patterns and shapes rich in color and texture that serve as counterpoint.
