"Francis Bacon famously remarked to Brett Whiteley at the opening of his ‘Christie-series’ in 1965, “You use me the way I use Velásquez...”Melbourne
There is a grand tradition of artists reacting and rebounding off each other throughout history, not just in style and substance but directly referencing and re-mixing imagery.
I believe we are all enveloped in a collagé- not in an academic sense but personally, physically, creatively and socially.
My blend is of the spraycan and the past- Oils, illustration, construction and conversation. This body of work is not simply visual essays on these prominent artists; but more about my long-term digestion of their influence and a reflection on myself, as just another cog in the on-going Armageddon of now." - Pheelix
