David Lavine, Seascape (Krakt), hand-cut paper collage, 7 5/8” x 6 1/4”.
All works are one-of-a-kind paper collages, hand-cut with scissors and assembled with archival tape and glue. There is no scanning, reprinting or photocopying, or any type of digital manipulation. All printed matter is fair game: textbooks, posters, magazines, catalogs, coloring books, maps, comic books, art books, etc. Working from a quarry of several thousand cut elements, form and color relationships serve as a starting point for each collage; eventually narrative threads appear as disparate elements begin to relate. Sometimes the finished collages are explosions of shape and color in hyper-dynamic compositions and seamless spatial interplay, other times they are minimal landscapes or seascapes resulting from the simple pairing of two cut pieces.
