Juxtaposition. Allegorical. Or maybe he just likes to stick his tongue out at  nature. Kevin Sloane.

David Hockney

26 09 2013

I was going to begin by saying that Hockney’s work is dated. His collages were created well before Photoshop. It was in the age of the Instamatic. He probably used a 35mm. And you can see his techniques being used in a lot of high school art classes. His ideas have influenced a lot of collage makers. Including myself. But with Photoshop his techniques have become so easy to duplicate that anyone can do it. Almost. Except. I still like what he has done. Perhaps there is nostalgia attached to his work. And in the future that may wane. Still… they are fun to look at.

Lola Dupree

Ms. Dupre’s work is startling. Her manipulation of photographs is wonderful. Though her work is done with scissors and glue I recall seeing an exhibition where students had used photoshop to get the same results. They did not get the same results. But their work was fun. I like Ms. Dupre’s work. Some of it is quite amusing and very sarcastic. Her pic of Margaret Thatcher is dead on.

If you find portraits interesting (I do) then you’ve got to appreciate the work of Lou Ros.

ARTist Daniel RICHTER

The GerMAN artist, Daniel Richter is open to inspiration from anywhere, and he finds it virtually everywhere, from art history to comic books (he scoured local shops) to newspaper photographs. Almost anything is fair game.

Then, after mixing, matching and merging ideas and elements from all these disparate sources, he manages to create something distinctively new — paintings and drawings that are unmistakably his.

Some of these works would seem impossible to solidify because of the varied elements colliding in them. But somehow Richter holds everything in balance, using the competing and often unlikely mix of ingredients to supercharge the whole.

A telling example is “Tuanus” (2000) Oil on Canvas 252 x 368 cm , an enigmatic scene showing two men being put up against a tree and searched by four police officers, or more ominously, militia members. It’s unclear.

The composition is inspired by…

Boy, you can have some fun browsing through this artist’s world. There is no darkside here. A lot of fantasy. The ideal imagination.

Peter Lewis

Peter Lewis is an Austalian collagist. His work is fun. Full of colour and images, mostly drawn either from some 50′s world of his fantasy or the Victorian age. He has made a wonderful little video where he talks about his work. It is quite illuminating. The one draw back is the downloads you are allowed at his sight are so small you can’t really appreciate what he has done.

Lee Harvey Roswell. Read his name and you get an idea where he is coming from. This is Dali in the 21st century. The court jester. His works are exuberant. His mind is like a scrap heap of visual images. Craftsmanship and imagination. What a combination

There must be something in the Dutch blood. They create some of the most bizarre visual pieces you will see. You ask yourself ‘where did they come up with that idea?’. Levi van Veluw is such an artist.  You’ve got to love it.
