Eyecandy: John Stezaker
At first sight the work of John Stezaker look like classic and old pictures. But who risks a closer look will see that the artist has mixed several pictures into collage, who often contain a deeper meaning.
Gender stereotypes are mingled and exposed: The face of the net looking man is marked by a deep cut – that is filled with the face of a woman. And the face of the beauty from the 150s is hidden behind a postcard showing a tunnel: A hint to her state of mind? Mainly a hint to the artists’ passion for surrealism!
