I’m getting a little bit tired of all of the collage artists who think that cutting a few triangles and overlaying them with another image makes unique art. Yawn and a half. Luckily, Arn Gyssels
is trying at least a little bit harder to be creative, and you know what? He’s succeeding. Some of his works feature rips and tears rather than scissor-cut geometric shapes, but even his pieces that are neat and symmetrical stray from feeling stale or calculated. Perhaps it’s because his body of work is so diverse and spans so many styles that there isn’t really a question of whether it’s genuine or not, but there’s just something more to this artist than all the other recycled mofos.
Also notable are some “printer jam” images. Beautiful abstractions.
