Cool Art of the Day… Collage Style
If you’re trolling around London I suggest checking out the Whitechapel Gallery for a good look at artist John Stezaker’s retro-meets-thoughtful-meets-creepy collages that will leave you intrigued, befuddled, and maybe even a little dizzy. Obviously I want one.
“The mystery of Stezaker’s art may be said to reside in these precise and shocking cuts. He has spoken of the moment when he takes a blade to the sleek surface of an old bromide print as one of heightened anxiety and tension – having handled and gazed at these images for months or even years, he likes to get the incision over and done with as swiftly as possible.” -The Guardian
