Tamara Stoffers is a Dutch visual artist expressing herself through the medium of collage. Her graduation at Minerva academy of fine art in 2017 marked the start of her professional career. 

The Soviet Union has a mysterious appeal to her. Its typical visual language in architecture and art feels nostalgic to some and is still relevant to others. She composes her images of old books concerning the USSR, cutting and pasting to create new situations. For her, crafting these works is a game. By digging through archives without a preconceived plan, she subconsciously finds visual connections. Her biggest challenge while doing this lies in the limitations caused by the size and subject of the source material. Subtle traces of the material and of her interventions, like grids and cuts, show that the basis is strictly analogue.
