Richard Buntzen, "Dead-tree Media x3"
During the past century artists have consistently used the materials of their time and world to reflect, and reflect upon, contemporary culture. Newsprint Collage evolves out of a continued exploration of experimental collage production and the use of current print media and visual journalism. Each work consists of borrowed imagery arranged on and applied to a flat, thirty-six-inch-square, two-dimensional ground. The individual arrangements become the complementary components that form joined modular sets. These modular sets are the end result of an ongoing process of retrieval, giving new life and meaning to newsprint that would otherwise be discarded and sent to recycling plants or landfills.
Multiple copies of daily newspapers are the source of the comprehensive imagery of Newsprint Collage, providing duplicate images of information, documentation, and narration. Intuitive impulse, cognitive awareness, and the powerful seduction by basic elements of design influence the selection of mechanically and technically printed images.
Isolated from [their original] context, fragments of visual facts transform into objective components of space and time and become the basis of the analytical managing and reprocessing of imagery. General principles of design combined with constant stimulation and exposure in our multimedia culture offer guidance in the creation of new and abstract figurations. These figurations, constructed vertical bands of repeated images, become unified through systematic arrangement. The juxtaposition of these figurations presents an ambiguous visual world that is both active and alive and open to interpretation.
