Inspired by a summer of love in San Francisco, 1960′s space travel, psychedelic revelry and nightmare, music festivals and war, places in dreams, peace, love and nostalgic hauntings. I mix elements of surrealism and pop art in a collage effect. Random characters and inanimate objects inhabit the same space and colours and patterns vie for attention within the composition.
I have always had a thing for beautiful collage art. I just like how two or more different motifs can form together something completely new that stands for itself. CARO.MA seems to be an expert in fusing interesting different elements – her tumblr at least indicates so as it is full of little treasures. I am very tempted to buy all of her postcards and plaster my kitchen with them.
I’m excited to have the band Thousands joining me for some upcoming touring. I’m a new fan of their music. I like its humanity and exposed feeling. It’s like a box of old photographs. And this video is the collage they made from them.
Goof Button is a collage artist whose work I was introduced to by I Want You Magazine. I think we can all agree that psychedelic collage is something of an oversaturated market at the moment, but to my mind Goof Button is king of the genre, combining subversive eroticism with a sharp aesthetic.
