Emilia Ilke – says: “I work exclusively in analog and practical. It’s fast and intuitive, which suits my temperament best. Making a collage is like putting together a puzzle. It is a search, a constant inner dialogue between me and the canvas. The scissors in my hand go by themselves and most of the time when I start painting I do not know what to do. I do not have a clear plan, but pictures are shown during the work. I try not to think so much but instead follow my first impulses.”
