Horkay’s digital collages
mr.h at Giornale Nuovo writes a fascinating blog with numerous entries about unusual art.
Recently he wrote about Istvan Horkay’s work and posted several of his images. Lee Spiro was quoted as saying: [his work] combines original drawn and painted images, appropriated masterpieces, photographs, artists’ signatures and commercial logos. These elements are digitally assembled, i.e., collaged, to create a single, layered moment reflecting different places and times.
I am always interested in how other artists do their work, particularly in the still new area of digital printmaking that I am exploring myself, and Horkay’s work is certainly inspiring! Thanks, mr.h.
