Micosch Holland's work revels in the Dada, Constructivist and Surrealist movements of the 20th century. He's a German artist who references painters and performance artists such as Kurt Schwitters, Joseph Beuys, and Marcel Duchamp. It's a hybrid art: vintage paper sources are cut up and collaged by…Show more hand and using cutting-edge digital tools. The results are a fusion of last century and now, though Holland is serious enough that this never comes across as pastiche or faux vintage. You're getting the real deal.
Holland sees similarities between the present era, and the last time collage was big news, the period between 1910 and 1930. So his assemblage art is highly political and historical. Hiss work has been shown widely across the Netherlands (where he studied) and Germany. He is also a graphic designer, who was awarded the Silver award from the Art Directors Club in Berlin.Show less
"These rough and gritty collages convey a powerful sense of realism and the struggle of everyday life. Mixing paint with new and old found images, Micosch is influenced by German great's such as Joseph Beuys, and that sense of poetic honesty is literally layered through all of his work."
