The attraction of celebrity. Luiz Dourado’s collages of the famous are both beautifully rendered and perplexing. They are simple but difficult to understand. I don’t always get them. I imagined to myself how interesting they would be if they were images of say… Victor Genova. Victor is well known, loved, and respected amongst his friends and colleagues in Canada. But outside the country? Would his image have any impact inside Dourado’s collages? Or is it the cinematic charisma of Robert Redford that makes his collage attractive? I don’t know. Neither does Victor.
