    Jack Samels

    collage

    I am inspired by industrial tools, knots and rope, animal hide and twine, steel and copper, natural materials and layers of dirt. Drawn to the materials one would normally manipulate with thier hands – wood, stone, metal, woodworking, ceramics, welding, construction– I use flat representations of them. Sometimes I abstract them completely or reinforce with abstract and bold color shapes.

    Making these collages by hand with razors and glue helps structure my process. I am forced to find new colors and textures and the physicality of the work informs how I approach each shape, each blank page.

    I find that the matte paper and styling of art, lifestyle and fashion publications to be the best. After exploring magazine shops for a variety of fresh material, I put each image on trail after cutting, and slowly arrange the fragments in a chaotic dance.

    This series is called Vessels.
