“The Architect” | Randy Grskovic | Analogue Collage, Electrical Tape, Thread, Ink and Graphite | 2008 | 22” x 36”
This was one of my most ambitious early collages. I stopped working digitally and picked up a razor blade. I started collecting very small engine parts from the pages of mid-century Popular Mechanics magazines. I wanted to create grandiose machines for the future. This one is an awkward Transhumanism, I’ve always imagined it as a plastic surgeon’s office.
You can see a circle at the top, it is a petri dish with the image of a male sculptor who is carving his muse.
