I went to a gallery called "Jealous Gallery" for exhibition. Artist, Joe Webb, he makes work by exploring the dark subjects of the society like political issues, war, and inequality. I really like his work because the prints what he has done shows the social conflict to let people think about the challenges of the 21st century. In his work, he use collage to present it, and I love the way that how he makes the contrast between sugary family having dinner in front of the battlefield. Furthermore, I learn that how he gets inspiration quickly, and produce more idea. In his word "the immediacy of collage and its graphic nature can get ideas down quickly and explore lots of different concepts, collage is the most political of all mediums"(The Mine, Page 66). This gives me thoughts about to learn more artists' work, there's always something that I can collage and get inspired from.
