Amazing Collage Art by Derek Gores
Derek Gores is a Florida-based artist who does not let boundaries and rules hold him back. He creates intricate collages from recycled magazine scraps, Internet photos, data, and maps, an aesthetic approach that led to him being named "one of the 40 important artists of the New Contemporary Movement!"
Gores combines the natural beauty of the human figure, the aesthetic of fashion, the angular design of machinery, and a fearless sense of play into his creations. "I like my pictures to barely come together with teasing little details," he says. "In the collages, some of the little bits I use are deliberate, but in most I'm trusting randomness to help build an end result more interesting than I could have planned."
He also teaches workshops to younger students, encouraging them to using the materials around them to break the boundaries of what they see everyday. Keep on inspiring us, Derek!
