These are some great handmade mixed media collages by British artist Joe Webb. His collage work uses the basic rule of sourcing just two or three images. Then Webb presents them as a reinvented single image with the objective of communicating a new message or idea. He started making these simple handmade collages as a sort of luddite reaction to working on computers for years.
“I like the limitations of collage…using found imagery and a pair of scissors, there are no Photoshop options to resize, adjust colors or undo.”
“I suppose I’m fairly anti technology although I now promote my art on websites like this, own an iPhone and use Facebook…I wish I had been born 100 years ago.”
