Humour in art; now and then
Author: Tammy Woodrow
Everybody loves a ‘Banksy’. Why? It’s the visualized jokery and mockery. The comedy makes it accessible. The political meaning of the artwork is immediately obvious. It’s about the people and for the people. The laughing mirror he holds up shows us in all our ugliness but from a comical angle.
The origins of wit in art can be traced back to as early as the ancient Greek and Romans who made fun of each other in their plays and on their vases. Prehistoric men and women were most likely also guilty of making amusing cave drawings to pass the time during those long and dark ice age periods.

Collage as a Reflection of Life: The Art of Karen Stamper
Author: Millie Freeth
Karen Stamper is one of the most respected abstract collage artists in the UK.
The term “collage” describes both the process and the outcome of splicing materials together whether that be digitally or traditionally cutting and sticking paper, photos, fabric, etc. Karen Stamper’s collages use this method to create echoes or simplified, flattened memories of often urbanised or tired landscapes. Although Stamper’s artworks are almost as far from conventional realism as possible, these vibrant explorations of colour and form truly highlight that the meaning behind an artwork does not need to rely on explicit imagery to convey the artist’s true message.
