Artist Creates Contemporary & Surreal Collages Mixing Aesthetic References

Douglas Hale‘s colourful collages intrigue with their mix of styles and symbolism. Using opposing references such as mythology, tribal imagery or the 80s aesthetic, Hale stages scenarios as beautiful as they are strange.

These collages give rise to kaleidoscopic and surrealist works that very often include musical references. While these images sometimes seem to have come out of a fashion magazine, there is always a bizarre, frightening or supernatural element that reminds us of the artist’s style.
