Ralph Goings

“My paintings are about light, about the way things look in their environment and especially about how things look painted. Form, color and space are at the whim of reality, their discovery and organization is the assignment of the realist painter.”  Ralph Goings, 1978.

Juxtaposing photographs found in magazines, books and on postcards John Stezaker creates delightfully obtuse collages which more often than not play around with facial features to surreal and unsettling effect. A small body of his work can currently be seen at the Saatchi Gallery, London.

Although rather literal and didactic at times, Chris Jordan’s artwork is rarely short of stunning. His meticulously executed works usually project a message  of some sorts – normally very obviously. For example, the above needs little explanation- a reworking of the Van Gogh painting: 200,000 cigarette boxes = approximately the number of Americans who die from cigarette smoke every 6 months. The message is clear.

nobodys_perfect

Jim Gaylord (alright calm down at the back) works by compositing still images from special effects and stunt sequences in films. The above work entitled ‘Nobody’s Perfect’ is, believe it or not, a number of scenes from the film Final Destination 2. Certain sections of the frame are isolated and rendered as the silk screen areas – such is the breakdown and re-shuffling of these frames, the original material is almost entirely unrecognisable in the final composition.
