Artist of the absurd. Of pain. Regret. Stories of anxiety (how things could have turned out). Mystery. Marwane Pallas.

Jacub Wojewoda

Jacub is basically a photographer. But some of his work has the quality of collages. In his case he stages his photos. But they are arresting. The black and white of the two lovers  is almost iconic.

Susannia Lakner

The work of Susannia Lakner is both playful and colourful. Of course some pieces work better than others. Sometimes when you see a smaller version of the work it is difficult to see  how the pieces work with each other. Almost invisible seamless pieces suddenly appear when blown up. Susannia does not try and hide her edges but works with them.

I love portraits. Mr. Khajeh offers a very unique insight. His women look so strong. And independent.

J. Philip White

Mr. White’s work is filled with arresting images. His work is another example of pieces where I have found the same pics that I used. These I believe have been heavily photoshoped. And they look great. He’s also blown them up to a larger size which I have done myself. And he sells his work. Which I have not done so much. Good for  him. I had a good time looking at Mr. White’s work. I think you might as well.

‘Much of my art deals with the subject of man’s inhumanity to man. My artistic aspirations are to heighten the viewers awareness of what has happened and what is happening to the human condition today as well as to raise pertinent questions and, ideally, to evoke an emotional and thought-provoking response. Admittedly, there are some scenes that may confront the psyche as shocking at first, but my hope is that upon closer examination and after further contemplation, these pieces will reveal themselves in the positive way in which they are intended.

Denise Prince

Her work is filled with stories. Almost brutal memories. And yet everything is staged. Things are disjointed. Melodramatic and yet powerful. Denise Prince.

Like quicksand. That’s the way Brian Zenk’s sight is. Once you’re in everything moves. And it is bright. Neon madness. I don’t think I’ve ever been in a sight like this one. Nothing stands still. Its wonderful stuff but be warned.

Like so many street artists, I can find very little about ‘Hurk’. Except h is work. Which is fine indeed.

Marjac

25 08 2013

Marjac is a Belgian collage artist. His work is playfull. Fun. He has a wicket sense of  humour. There is no pretense to his work. Of course his sight is in French and my French is limited. But I like this guy.

Joyce Hill

22 08 2013

Browsing through galleries and artists sights on the web, one thing has bothered me with collage artists. So many are involved in patterns, relief work, material etc. Layered on top of each other. Or set aside in some vaguely abstract fashion. That is supposed to do something. To you. And yet. I think it’s a lie. Passing something off as art. That is no more than anything that might have fallen on the floor during renovations of your bathroom. (I know I sound like a Philistine.) Except. Occasionally you find an artist like Joyce Hill. Who does use relief and other materials. But still includes representational pieces. And it works for me. I like her work. Its interesting. And makes you want to check out more of her stuff.
