Collage artist Melinda Gibson transforms existing scenes into unique works of art via her signature cut-out style for her new project with mb! magazine and the A-Class in London. Blessed with a unique vision, Melinda Gibson shows places, spaces and scenes in a new light, revealing aspects unnoticed by the photographer or highlighting those that Gibson missed in the original.
Her prime source and basis: well-thumbed magazines, old prints or her personal image archive; choice elements that lend photographs by icons like Wolfgang Tillmans an entirely new aesthetic – that certain Gibson flair that reframes what’s obvious, but not always visible. Exclusively for mb! the artist now takes a new leap of faith and her method one step further. All of the artworks gathered in the series do not rely on magazine finds or extended antiquing trips but instead break new ground with their artistic substrate.
