CAA Scholarship Award

Brittney HoogervorstTo maintain ties to the community and to promote the study of collage, Collage Artists supports an annual scholarship for a deserving art student.

San Diego-area native Brittney Hoogervorst is the first recipient of the Collage Artists of America Scholarship at California State University Northridge. The young artist creates sculptural works that turn abandoned objects and materials into literal and conceptual assemblages. Combined with texture, pattern, layered images, and surface treatments, the resulting altered combine-like pieces explore issues about the suburban home, a theme born of the dysfunctional families around which she grew up.

Brittney’s artist statement notes “Abandoned household furniture and objects, like organisms, carry an honest record that can both haunt and invoke nostalgia. Suburban neighborhoods live behind facades and by wrapping, covering, and altering the surface of my sculptures I create a facade for them as well. Through sculpture I explore the disguises that mask dysfunctional families.”

The scholarship, now formally named for CAA, was presented on May 3, 2013 at the school’s annual awards ceremony sponsored by the CSUN Arts Council. CAA chose to award its annual scholarship at CSUN because the school offered better oversight of its program than other institutions, and CAA had the ability to set applicant requirements and make the final recipient decision.
