Matthew Sage

8 10 2011

Matthew Sage’s work is almost a counter point to my own. His work is random, almost careless. It looks in some ways like street art. And yet when it works, it is quite effective. Much of this work is interesting on a personal side because I have used the same images or sources myself. With a different result. Sage seems to enjoy chaos, giving glimpses of order but not robbing his torn pieces of their essential randomness. He seems more absorb in the colour of the pics rather than the object of the photos themselves. (I’ve been saying random too much. I sound like my teenaged daughter.)

This artist takes amazing pictures. He creates wonderful story lines. Many of them are sexual in nature so you have been warned. This one I particularly like because there is a rabbit in it. I don’t like rabbits. But I did like the movie Harvey with Jimmy Stewart. So I’ve made room for this rabbit. (Most of them can’t be trusted. They chew your wires.)

Here, take our money

Humour is used to sell a lot of things. Advertisers hope that if they can make you smile you’ll be less reluctant NOT to buy their products. Its as if they sense that we don’t really want to buy any of these medicines. We’d rather feel better. Or put up with it. But since you made us smile… here take our money. As you may detect, I hate advertising. If the devil had a pulpit, it would be in an ad-firm.
