Collage: Paper, Photogram on Paper.
A journey into the subconscious mind of strangers – One Track Mind is a new onecuts project that opens a window onto the pathways of thought and contemplation.
The subject’s face is replaced by a rectangular section of railway detail; these portray the bridges we cross when we learn and grow, the tracks we leave when risk-taking and sidings we choose that branch off and open up new opportunities.
Brighton & Hove based artist Louis TF employs art as a tool to reveal parallel worlds that exist side by side one another – primarily highlighting the past/present, analog/digital clashes that ripple throughout modern western societies and addressing our obsessions with the strive for perfection and our strident desires that allow technologies to seemingly enhance our lives, versus the unsung and forgotten – The tangible tangentials – the glorious imperfections of yesteryear.
Louis has developed into an ‘image editor’ ; creating urgent artworks formed from his own drawings and found materials. His onecuts and multicuts turn existing visual narratives on their head – exploring humanity’s reliance on chance and the serendipitous seconds that give rise to sudden revelations of character or twists in a tale. The anomalous storytelling of these collage artworks speak of immediate/sudden narrative clashes, the fragments of images aiding him to propel the past into the present, and championing their new found life as works of art-anachronisms. As much of the source material as possible is retained within many collage projects, whether paper-margins, borders or credits, the presence of such details are deemed essential in the anchoring of them to their analog heritage whilst acknowledging the beauty of the source material.
