Jeg vil blogge om om en spesiell mann jeg har hatt en del kontakt med i det siste.
Han selger obskure bøker, og lager de mest fantastiske collager jeg har sett på årevis. By hand mind you.
Fra hans side: "Non-Participation & Social Criticism are NOT CRIMES!! I watch society slowly implode from the safe perch of alienation - knowing full well I had nothing to do with its imminent destruction since I am a non-participant, it will be self inflicted. I feel no guilt only the shame - of thousands of extinct animal & plant species, polluted oceans and air and the damage from most of modern civilizations other great achievements - I am not impressed by a twenty or more story concrete building and cell phones with disgusting ring-tones (never owned a cell-phone EVER) and I have NEVER flown in a jet airliner. I am much more impressed by a mountain or tree - just think about THAT! I AM truly an alien!Turmoil inside the artist that is apparent in his work reflects the chaos of the outside world of society, church and state he is so critical of. As an Artist with these weapons of mass destruction (my scissors and glue) I assault mainstream culture, science, society, church and state with my personal deconstruction rituals in the form of darkly humorous collages that are misanthropic swipes at this so called civilization and its sacred images and symbols. How can every Religion be the only first, true and right Religion they all claim to be HA!!! It would make more sense and would be a lot less deadly if people could grasp the concept of 'Many Paths to Enlightenment' ?? Just a Thought? Although mainly dark and apocalyptic, the collages I do are tinged with just enough humor and irony to hopefully suggest a glimmer of hope for the people and planet that I feel so distant from. What fools these mortals be!!"
Han klarer seg så vidt økonomisk, så det er en glede å kunne støtte hans arbeid.
