These are collage artworks by Nicholas Lockyer. The juxtaposition of the cut out elements create new and interesting forms, often organic, sprouting horns or scales. “(His) work explores the relationship between the saturation point of digitalization in today’s society, Trash Cinema and lowbrow ephemera culture that exists outside the digital world and the themes of primitivism, ritualism, mutation and attitudes towards death.” I find the collages repellent but also find myself taking a closer look, as the figures appear to morph from human to animal to growth, and then back. They are intriguing also in their painterly qualities, and although nightmarish, they resonate with the viewer, and their shattered appearance emphasises their dreamlike, hypnotic effect.
