“Cut Up” Creations by Lola Dupre
Our family is big on jigsaw puzzles. It fits our sense of order. Our “journeyman” skill level qualifies us to whip together a 1000 piece travel scene of Bruges in an afternoon. I am in awe of some “Grand Masters” who can tackle two-sided challenges with no “front of the box” picture but rather one solid color. (These are the same kind of looney-tuners who aspire to Level 22 in Donkey Kong.)
I think it would warm John Spilsbury‘s heart to think of what his invention has done to promote good old-fashioned togetherness and teamwork.
It would be fun to sit around at Springbok and dream up new puzzle themes. I’d start with works by artist Lola Dupre. She deconstructs photographs and reassembles them into mind-bending collages.
Holy cats – these are AMAZING! As a part-time collage artist, I know just how complex these really are.
I find interesting how these portraits resemble birds after they are assembled as collages. Very cool.
Cool! I’ll do it. thanks.
That is so crazy! It reminds me a lot of the artist Chris Berens. He is doing something different with his work, but his process involves cutting up small segments like this. If you don’t know him, check him out. He’s one of my favorites!
Thank you Terry!
Posted this to my own FB wall this AM —I loved these.
Very cool. And I have not thought about Donkey Kong in at least 20 years. Looking at your artists continually reminds me to keep my day job! o.k. Back to work now…
