John Stezaker

Resonating Nostalgic Lyricism
Posted by Angie—12/2013

In an image-saturated world, British collage artist John Stezaker rather creates more with less. Cutting up yesterday photographs, subtracting pieces, and juxtaposing faces, he transforms forgotten photographs and postcards into symbolic portraiture of modernism. Stezaker’s artistic interests in examining hidden relations between images have bestowed international success and recognition upon him and his collage art. Gestalten.tv had a precious opportunity to speak with the artist at his exhibition in Berlin’s Capitain Petzel Gallery.

Featured in the celebrated group exhibition The Age of Collage, his topical work is now on display at Gestalten Space in Berlin until January 12, 2014. The accompanying book The Age of Collage: Contemporary Collage in Modern Art takes an insightful behind-the-scenes look at those working with this interdisciplinary and cross-media approach.
