Joe Webb’s work eschews the neo-traditional standard of digital manipulation, opting to meticulously craft his psychedelic work by hand.
Sourcing two to three images at a time, Webb’s finished collages probe the unreality of modern-life, with an emphasis on his disdain for technology.
I started making these simple hand-made collages as a sort of luddite reaction to working as a graphic artist on computers for many years. I like the limitations of collage…using found imagery and a pair of scissors, there are no Photoshop options to resize, adjust colours or undo.
I suppose I’ve become fairly anti-technology… although I now promote my art on websites, own an iPhone and use Facebook…It’s confusing, I wish I had been born 100 years ago. – Joe Webb
