Ilene Gold

Collages Created Entirely From National Geographic Magazines
Ilene Gold creates collages using only National Geographic magazines. Cutting thousands of pieces of paper and assembling them into a new image. The collage idea started by recreating famous paintings made entirely from these magazines. As this medium evolved, a new collection started with the recreation of Ilene Gold’s award winning photographs, still using only National Geographic magazines. Look closely and you may find a hidden phrase or words within some of her pictures. She tries to capture a painterly quality with each collage. It seems she is almost painting with paper.
As early as 10 years of age, Ilene sold her first painting. From a Fine Arts major to an Advertising & Design major, Ilene has continued to work in the art field. A graduate from the University of MD, with continuing studies in Fine Arts at MICA and writing at Johns Hopkins University. While living in Florida, she worked for Recommend and Boca Raton Magazines. She has taught art at Grace United Methodist Church, Baltimore Hebrew Sunday School, Johns Hopkins Art Camp, Park Camp and Howard County Center for the Arts.
