“Lockdown Collages” by Artist Nico Krijno

Nico Krijno (previously featured here) is a South African contemporary artist working with photography at what he describes as “the blurry intersection of collage, painting, sculpture and performance”. His “Lockdown Collages” were made recently while separated from his wife and kids on the farm where they live, just outside Cape Town. He describes his process:

“The collages are made from re-photographed old images, which I have collected over the years. Each image featured is important to my process and research and references previous work that I have created. I made small prints and placed these on my scanner, exposing them to the beam under a black cloth by moving different images around on the flatbed. It is very satisfying as it usually takes me 10 painstaking tripod plates to create a single image.”
