Sam Lubicz

Western Theory

I am breaking all the rules for Sam Lubicz. By that I mean featuring both his collage work and photography IN THE SAME POST. Why? Because they’re both good and because I believe a dialogue exists between the two. Despite being two different modes of expression, Lubicz’s collage work and photographs share a certain playful moodiness that emphasizes the relationship between the two mediums. Like maybe one’s a pug and one’s a schnauzer but they’re both dogs. I love dogs.

Josh Vanover / SPACEKNUCKLE

Based in Charlotte, North Carolina, visual artist Josh Vanover (a.k.a. SPACEKNUCKLE) combines geometric wizardry with a frenzied collage technique to explosive effect. Something about that darkly epic aesthetic seems to scream contemporary design. Outer-space overload can be a beautiful thing.

Cusick’s Map Works is a collection of portraits, landscapes, freeway interchanges all painted on maps. His skills are remarkably beautiful. Check out more works by him after the cut.

Dave McDermott

Artist Dave McDermott’s minimalistic approach to collage is what drew me into his work. This Santa Cruz, CA native is now living in New York. McDermott has a very unique interpretation to collage, giving two dimensional black and white photography color and dimension.

Maksim Hem

unreachable

Collage artist Maksim Hem aptly titled this quiet series of works “Untitled Colours.” The name lends itself to the idea of objects overlooked, because they don’t scream and shout to get your attention. Hem’s restraint does not imply a lack of feeling but rather an attention to detail that is unnecessary to decorate. It’s like watching the Discovery Channel over Bravo–the life and times of baby cheetahs are just such a welcome change of pace.

Alex Fischer

Toronto-based creator Alex Fischer seems to prefer images laden with layers. Each image screams with a smashing of cultures and a tearing of borders. Fischer questions ownership in a similar manner to Richard Prince. Each image shows patience with a strident attention to detail, as each pressing of images goes further and further into a world all its own.

Originally from Russia, Sasha Tugolukova moved to London to pursue a career in art and illustration. Certainly not one to shy away from mixed media, Tugolukova produces collage images of what seem to be cut-outs from fashion photography and melds them together to create a piece of style and grace all her own.
