Disillusions, artificial realities and multi-dimensional surroundings. The US artist Kevin Welsh speaks on human condition through the art of collage.
Using photography as a primary medium, Welsh creates layers of meaning. Prints, cut-outs and floral patterns incorporated into his work build up a contras, which is symbol of clashes between human expectations and the reality. Welsh’s figures are impersonal, devoid of faces and identity, where art is expression of truth about a society. As the individuality disappears, we’re feeling part of the collage where anonymity of people and places leaves space for re-interpretation.
