For the first time, this large-format volume brings together John Stezaker’s unique silkscreen woks executed between 1977 and 1994. Stezaker is best known for his intimate collages of film stills, postcards and other found imagery; these mid- to large-scale silkscreens add a new, fascinating perspective to the perception of this inventive British artist. While this body of work seems to contrast with the collages, in fact it uses many of the same techniques, like cutting out, cropping, slicing, over-laying and repetition, and create the dark, cinematic feeling, alternately menacing and satirical, that pervades Stezaker’s work. Over 65 images accompany a comprehensive essay by Caoimhín Mac Giolla Léith.
