Collage Artist Megan Coyle

” A Potomac River Afternoon”, Collage, Megan Coyle.

When you think of a collage, I am sure you automatically revert to your younger days – all the fond memories of snipping and glueing and taping while sitting under harsh fluorescents in your elementary school art class.

But, collage artist Megan Coyle’s exhibit, Stories in Paper, which is now on view at The Art League, will most definitely change your perspective on the art form.  Coyle’s work is anything but juvenile,  she creates intricate “paintings” full of textures and layers using an unconventional medium.

Coyle says, “Utilizing this method allows me to create artwork that captures the essence of a painting, but broadens my palette to include textures, pattern, and fragments of photographs from magazines”.

Stories in Paper will be exhibited at The Art League of Old Town Alexandria through August 2nd.

Since moving to DC in 2007 to get an MFA in Interior Design, her eyes can’t seem to be peeled away from the beautiful things in this city.

  1. Megan’s work is fantastic. It’s hard to believe she creates these wonderful “paintings” with scraps of paper. Really worth looking at.
