Alexander Korzer – Robinson

2

I’m always intrigued by artists who find original ways of expressing themselves.  While I often feel I have so much to express, I’m constantly stumped as to how to do it; my mind simply goes toward writing or drawing and I often times feel unfulfilled.  It’s always inspiring to see fresh forms of work, and Alexander Korzer-Robinson has completely captivated my imagination.  A few years ago, I found his work scary – now, maybe because I’m older (?) I find it whimsical.  Using old books, he creates narrative collages as a way of representing the inner self for the viewer to dive into.  As if the use of books wasn’t nostalgic enough, Alexander only uses images found within the book creating a specific world that each viewer will remember differently.  While we reflect within the book, we are the book, finding our own personal sentiment with what is only on the inside.

Bad Dreams

While stunning and beautiful, Alexander Korzer-Robinson’s intricate and small collages using illustrations from antiquated books and maps (they’re framed in said books) make me feel like I’m stuck in a nightmare.  With so much going on it’s hard to focus on just one image and I get a weird feeling that I can’t escape.  It’s like being stuck in a shadowy, flickering old movie where random images flash before you.
