Put it Together Your Own Way

With digital there are only two options: on or off, yes or no, true or false. Analogue gives far more choice, and is therefore the obvious choice for an artist, whose aim it is to be creative and produce something unique.

Andrew Corlett prefers analogue to digital methods for his work, which includes photomontage, printmaking, illustration, and stop-frame animation.

A bit of a scavenger at heart, most of his montages have not been made using photos he has taken, but ones found at charity shops. Corlett says, 'I collect unusual and rare images from second hand books. I enjoy this process of searching for and collecting images because it's as if the images find me not vice versa.'

Until the 28th February at the Cre8 Gallery in Hackney Wick, Corlett is showcasing his photomontages and screen printed work. His stop-frame animation is a game of trickery, with time lapses, cut-ups, and claymation. Corletts stays that they are 'collections of visual ideas'. Originally from Leeds, Retrofit is his first London solo exhibition. On the final night there will be a party from 6pm-10pm with a live band.
