Jordan Clark‘s collages are on their own riff. His pictures are not so much interested in the juxtaposition of vintage images so much as deconstructing the image and recreating a kaleidoscopic vision of it, as if looking at a picture through a prism. What we see therefore is a series of studies in perspective, an opportunity to look at everyday images in a new way. His delicate cut and paste collages an opportunity for us to re-examine how we look at photographs and how we relate geometric shapes to form and composition.
Like many other collage artists Clark was drawn to the artform because of it’s organic process, it’s potential to tap into the subconscious, to create a surreal reality that mines the everyday and gives us a new insight into aesthetic form. Here’s what he has to say about collage:
I am constantly on the computer looking at images and trying to see if I could play around with it to get something new. When I make paper collages I have no idea what I’m going to find. I can let my mind run wild with images.
