Artist Statement / Ginger Sedlarova
The Gallery at The Cultch Show February 2021
I consider myself both a collage artist and a storyteller. Sometimes my work is a short story, sometimes it’s a novel. But it’s always surreal, full of observations about the absurdity of daily life or conversations with the cities I’ve lived in, visited and loved.
My practice grew from my love of making photo collages in my former newspaper career as a graphic artist – only now I do this by hand, using my own photos combined with historical images and paper in a dreamlike form of narrative. The ability to layer these images with colours and textures, historical maps, newsprint and found items inspires me to create multi-layered landscapes of both fiction and history. I love to work with the bizarre, the comical, the outlandish – while working, I always keep the words of an artist who inspires me, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, in the back of my mind: “You can do anything. Nothing is forbidden.”
