For tomorrow’s group exhibition by Collagistes Collective and Creative Debuts, in association with Whitechapel Gallery First Thursdays, I have started a collage series titled WET DREAMS. The series was inspired by aerial landscape imagery and the sense one feels when viewing the land from above, whether one is viewing it from atop a mountain or from an aeroplane’s window. The above work – WET DREAMS no.1 was sadly rejected by the gallery as it was deemed too inapproriate, but you can see 3 other original collage works from the series at The Black and White Building in Shoreditch until 03 November 2016. Please pop by if you’re in the area to see #TWENTY – an exhibition full of wonderful abstract paintings and inspiring collages.

Inspiring work by Paul Graham, which is now being exhibited at the Whitechapel Gallery until 19 June. I especially love his American Night series, which includes the three images above. The washed-out images have been cleverly printed, giving the viewers a sense of gloominess. It also seems to inform the viewers that the reality is fading. If you look closely, you will notice that the locations are deserted, with the exception of one person, presenting its depressing mood in a post-apocalyptic kind of way.

Same approach but (surely) different concepts. Coincidentally, I found John Stezaker’s work at Whitechapel Gallery‘s website – his exhibition opens at the end of this month until March. Researching his artworks, I found an image from Vilma Gold, which resembles to what I have done, not long ago, with magazine pages.
