Lay Flat

These days it seems only a few publications introduce me to work I’ve never seen before. Lay Flat is one of them.

    The first two pages is such a rip of John Stezaker I threw up a bit.

      are you going to be ok?

    Stezaker has been working with collage for a long time but he made his ‘Film Portrait’ works pretty recently (2006 on, from what I can gather).

    Schmid made ‘Photogenic Drafts’ back in 1991.

    Don’t throw up on the wrong person…

      it appears Schmid has been making work like this for nearly 20 years but it doesn’t matter to me personally. i just have to laugh when people get so hung up on who did what first and are quick to label things as rip offs.

      this is such a simple idea (two portraits split in half) – i mean, i’ve had similar ideas and had never seen either artists’ work before.

      relax!

      thanks Nicool! I saw those and immediately “…wonder if anyone knows who made these?!” they are AWESOME!!

  • Joseph

    Yeah, I know nothing is original. It just seems alot of people are ripping on Stezaker and Wanguchi Mutu lately.

      maybe just do some research before you make negative comments towards someone’s work

    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Or something along those lines. So quit your bitching and swallow your vomit.

  • Joseph
