Weary of technology and its constant restrictions, Joe Webb started making photocollages of pictures he would find in vintage magazines from the 1950s. Blending the romantic era of glamorous models and dreamlike ideals, Webb produces artwork that act as reinvented images with the objective of communicating new messages and ideas. Sourcing just two to three images, he merges history and modernity, surrealism and romance. Photographs selected for the exhibition includes some of his most renowned works, like collages of surrealist portraits over women from the 1950s, a playful nod to both Magritte and Matisse.
The Pulp friction exhibition will also showcase Webb’s early work, which is focused on politics and humour, prior to his more minimalistic and abstract collages. Vintage nostalgia loses itself in a cheeky friction between decades, in what seems to be a one of a kind exhibition.
