Gerard Bertram

Bertram’s work is very interesting. And fun to look at. I do wonder about using these images of popular/cultural figures. I’ve used them myself. Their iconic quality allows one to investigate ideas or images that wouldn’t necessarily work if one were using private individuals.

I also like Hitchcock





Jann Berte

These pop images by Jann Berte are very polished. But I think they lack a sense of themselves. You’ve seen the original images before and the collages do not add any new visual/intellectual insights. And the technique tends to make all the images similar.

I added an image of my own. I did this one on Bob Dylan. I don’t think it looks anything like him.
