Luca Mainini

Luca Mainini’s work is wonderful. Filled with visual puns, jokes, a great deal of humour. And I think that is one of the strengths of collage. Even his titles are funny. Reminding me of a friend of mine, Ed Kuris, who also likes to use puns to mock his own work. The artist in both these cases is telling us not to take their work too seriously. At the same time, this attitude makes their work more worthy of attention and examination.
