splitting image : tinning street

Last night I sauntered through the contemporary collage wonderland that is Splitting Image. In a word? Fabulous! Collage the way I like it – no digital tricks, just cutting, pasting, and reinvention of some amazingly lush found materials. If you’ve got an unloved stash of National Geographics at home, this show will inspire you to create and enoy a whole bunch of new realities!

Vibrant works by Rupert Carr-Gregg, Zoe Croggon, Minna Gilligan, Lillian O’Neil, Georgia Robenstone and Tai Snaith, on at Tinning Street until April 22.

I fell in love with Georgia Robenstone’s style and composition. The first seven works in the show are hers, I could have quite easily bought them all…Above is why not do as the whales do? 2012

Domestic Fugue 2012, by the amazing Tai Snaith

The delightfully educational space-themed work of Rupert Carr-Gregg. This one is titled Does anybody live on the moon? 2012

I also dearly loved Zoe Croggon’s Challenger photocollage…

Thank you Laura Couttie for curating such a diverse and inspiring show!
