Those are really collages although I didn’t make any cuts-out at all. They also follow somehow the style of classical painting, because I have spent hours editing them on Photoshop. The invested time is important and I kept track of the hours of work (between 3 and 20 hours each!). I used different kind of found photography: trendy magazines, porn, cars, cheap material… you name it. Finally I tried to erase the motive subject in the picture: people, cars… I consider these pictures an exercise in contemporary composition. How do we arrive to this? What do we see when the main subject is gone?. Are they formal art?. How do we perceive?. What does working mean?… but let all that crap to the critics.
