More collage art. But Jesse Draxlers‘s collage art really stands out – there’s more going on. He doesn’t seem content with a fixed style, when looking at his work theres a wide variety of ideas and processes going on, there’s a real energy and vibrancy in every piece he creates. On top of which he has a wonderful eye for seeing the absurd, an almost minimal aesthetic and focus on distinct form.
Here’s what he has to say about his work:
With my work I strive to create interesting juxtapositions, both visually and conceptually. I attempt to bend the viewers mind and create a two dimensional space with both depth and spacial impossibilities. A good laugh never hurts either.
I always work traditionally. Computers never aid in the creation of my work, though I create images that borrow from the techie computer art style, which is a juxtaposition in and of itself.
I’m most interested in materials and process: organizing chaos into unified forms, and conversely turning clean into chaos.
Creating an image is like putting a puzzle together. I am always waiting for the moment when everything clicks and each element is in its place. This can take a very long time or a very short time; the duration of the process is completely irrelevant.
