This is one of the origins of collage/montage work. The Dada movement is interesting because it parallels the rise of fascism in Europe. What did they have in common? Prostrate glands for one.

When I was about 13, a friend and I found a shopping bag filled with magazines of naked women. As you can imagine this was Valhalla for teenage boys. But all the magazines had been soaked in weeks of rain. As we opened the magazines, the pages peeled off like skin. The ink from one page ran off onto the picture on the opposite page. Very bizarre pictures were created. This is what crossed my mind when I ran across Nigel Tomm’s work. And it completely blew me away. The images are crumpled, almost disposable. And they are very powerful.
This is one strange dude. Take care. He might come off on your fingers.

His collages are fun. Humor is one of the key elements. There is a Western theme to the lot. Its like a masquerade party. And now you’re waiting for the ‘but’.
