Joe Webb’s collages are done with vintage magazines and printed ephemera that he has collected over the years. His work includes political and humorous pieces as well as surreal movie collages and minimalistic abstract work. As a basic rule, two very different types of images cause a crazy clash. Cutting accurately with scissors, Webb is a master of his genre: »No computer trickery« as he has assured us on his page.
Filthy keyboards, digital pack rat interiors, fetish anime art and 8-bit video game graphics embedded in a loopy realness – the digital lifestyle of Jon Rafman’s »Still Life (Betamale)« collage is breathtaking, or as Brandon Soderberg said: »This collage of a clip invokes awe, empathy, sadness, and horror all at once, or one after another or who even knows, could receive, right?«
More than the sum of its parts: Kent Rogowski assembles fantastic puzzles with very surprisingly parts. It was indeed not easy to mix and match all available puzzle pieces to create these wacky variations. »At one point there was around 20,000 puzzle pieces floating around my studio«, Rogowski keeps telling people.
This collage series »Ansichten auf die wir verzichten können« by Tina Schott makes me smile. Wonderful knack for colours, snippets and motifs. The setting is nicely curious, often slightly spontaneous and with great sensitivity! For the complete work history, please visit her page.
