The Beauty in the Banal
There is something sacred in the profane, something beautiful and lasting in the fleeting moment of forgotten things that get thrown away or left behind. My paintings are inspired from macro photographs of decaying objects found in the urban landscape; details of worn out magazines, wires, rusted nails or wooden poles layered with staples and torn up paper. These mass-produced items are used to serve a momentary purpose then left to decay in their natural surroundings. In this transitional state, in this moment somewhere between glory and gloom, I find a new world that is a part of every day life even though we rarely notice it….
Guy Catling is a graphic designer from Essex, United Kingdom. He mainly uses the art of collage to express his creativity, often blending black and white photographs with vibrant pattern or folk prints. The tones and contrast between sharp colors and vintage photographs bring back to life some dark subject matter.
