Fragile Man

Magazine Collage, 2017

Without the ability to actualize an idea or concept, art would not exist. My work juxtaposes clippings from magazines with an album cover. In this specific art work I only limited myself to one medium which was magazine clippings. In this art piece I created an image of a man made up of many different shapes and colours to represent diversity. I chose to create this man because it reminds me of how an individual is comprised of many different aspects, similar to a building or piece of architecture. In this work the man is created from tiny pieces of magazine clippings to shape his face structure as accurately as possible, just how a person reflects many different traits. This artwork was created to represent every individual and how we as humans are created so differently but also so similar to one another.
