Piece description from the artist
This collage is made up out of paper that was inked with found objects. After the paper and ink patterns were made pieces were fit together to form the portrait. My portraits are less about the sitter’s personality and more about a universal objectification of the human experience.
Albert is one of those artists that likes dabbling in all different kinds of materials. Sometimes he's using traditional methods of making art like oil painting, drawing from life and etching but other times he's drawing cartoons on receipts after dinner or cutting antique magazines for collage.
He thinks it's important to always change up how you are creative to keep the feeling of creation alive and exciting. Collaging paper cutouts mostly from old books and magazines, he says, is the most fun because the immediacy of surprise is always so entertaining.
"I love collaging from magazines because there's so much humor in seeing how we advertise to our fears and desires. It's like this encyclopedic phycological profile on our species that when cut apart and rearranged has so much humor"
