Tweet of the Day: Jaroslav Rossler

Some great examples of photomontage early origins in The former Czechoslovakia. It was a part of the constructivism movement started by Alexander Rodchenko. From what I interpritate it was under the slogan of “art for art’s sake“. I see this as doing it because you can rather a real direction. Sort of making the image work. The right angle always seems very popular in this type of work. Making it feel stern and aggressive. it almost grabs your attention and demands you look twice. The image always veer strong towards depth of field. I think this is way the where such a powerful tool in the Communist propaganda machine

I am a visual artist and poet who works within the context of fine art. My work is grounded in documentary, exploring the inner beauty of everyday life through various lens based media. Notions of nostalgia and social commentary are present, but from a definite northern working class perspective. Instinctively I exploring the townscapes of North Wales and the North West, often producing work that reflects the every day minutiae of life.
