Sammy Slabbinck (born 1977, Belgium) creates dynamic surrealist contemporary collage reminisent of the great Jacques Prévert. Found magazine images are decontextualized and re-appropriated as Slabbinck plays with scale and juxtaposition. The context is often mid-Atlantic and mid-twentieth century and the images pay homage to the genius of the great 70's powerhouse of brain food that was Hipgnosis. Using humour as a visual tool Slabbinck choreographs compositions, meditating on the absurdity of popular consumerist culture, both past and present. Often witty but at the same time foreboding and dark, Slabbinck's deft hand creates a unique signature that is definitely his own!
