The collage series is based on depicting people in their everyday lives and with the things that surround them. The artist is fascinated by collages and I am working on her first collage series. The collage is a technique from the fine arts in which individual fragments made of different materials are combined and put together to create a new total work of art. The term "collage" comes from the French word "coller" which means "to glue" or "to glue".


However, Karin Döring does not create the collage by “gluing” as is conventional. Instead, she paints the individual fragments (everyday objects, environment, plants, animals, etc.) into her collage and arranges them around and with the person she depicts in them.
