Just finished some paintings and sketches of photomontages I made this week. I’ve done a lot of fast charcoal sketches of the scenes, some in pencil and a few in paint and ink.

Although Stezaker is famous for his portraits, he often combines a portrait with a landscape to demonstrate part of the human body. For example here, as part of his Mask Series, Stezaker combines old photographs with postcards of mostly British landmarks to create a completely unique...

Think I used up the art departments ink allowance… I organised all the photos and put some up on the wall. I was ripping up a photo from the Lake District and one from California and rearranging the pieces into a new landscape. The scale and proportions of the photos were similar making it easy...

I have gathered my own visual information from Western America, Edinburgh, The...
