> DESCRIPTION

British artist John Stezaker discusses his work at the Contemporary Art Society.

John Stezaker uses collage to explore the subversive within found images such as film magazines, vintage postcards and illustrations. Fall XII and Fall XIII (both 1992) were recently bought for York Art Gallery through the Contemporary Art Society with support from the Art Fund and the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.The male and female collages explore traditional artistic training such as anatomical study and life drawing, by referencing the source material of Arthur Thompson’s book Anatomy for Art Students, a core text for students at the Slade School of Art until the 1970s.

Fall XII and Fall XIII are on display at the Contemporary Art Society alongside a selection of other works from York Art Gallery’s collection.
