I just ran across this article by Charlie White in the current issue of Artforum. He seems curious about, but slightly dismissive of what he sees as a adolescent trend in contemporary collage. Sherri Caudell Brennan is a great example of someone who utilizes the kind of 'teenage bedroom' esthetic that he talks about, but there's a lot more going on. They've got some serious soul...

  2. These look very fresh. I love the way Sherri photographed the bottom one on black showing the looseleaf holes and the way the background relates to the thumbs up hand...very clever
