Artist’s constant desires to construct their own realities always puts me in awe. Francisca Pageo “not only fullfills her constant duty of constructing her subjectivity, but does it in such a fragile and tricky field as collage, which sometimes seems to be ruled by a systematic ad nauseam repetition of naïve cliches.” (Héctor Rey) The journey of self-construction and self-identification every artists much travel takes place within the relationship between the artist and his/her image. The beauty created through a combination of technical skills, inspirational vision, and unyielding dedication is what defines art itself. I believe it is important to take notice of this necessary transformation every artist goes through. Pageo’s collages suitably reflect not only her metamorphous approach to view her reality, but also the revolutionary path one is required to mature as an artist.
