Primer by Matthew Craven
Collaging is our favorite medium. It is playful, can get your imagination really going, and attainable for most to explore on their own. We were blown away by this book when we came across it, and hope you find inspiration between the pages as well.
Utilizing found images from textbooks along with his own geometric patterns, Matthew Craven’s collages and illustrations seek to create a new handmade universe, juxtaposing imagery from different cultures and time periods to celebrate commonalities. Photographs of archaeological remains and the natural world are overlaid on colorful textiles drawn on the back of vintage movie posters, to create a hypnotic and mesmerizing vernacular of symbols and designs.
