Artworks by SAVH artists, Katy Lee and Adeline Vejaletchmy, are collages made up of paper cut-outs. Popularised in the 20th century, by Pablo Picasso and Henri Mattisse, collage is an image presented through the assemblage of different forms and shapes. Both artists picked this as a medium of expression, a tactile art form they were familiar with using the sense of touch.
