Hang-Up Gallery is pleased to introduce Pulp Friction, the inaugural solo exhibition from collage artist Joe Webb. Webb collects vintage magazines and printed ephemera from which he painstakingly creates beautiful dreamlike collages, by hand, with no computers. Heavily drawn to iconic and nostalgic images, the Pulp Friction exhibition nods to this 1950s romance era where the majority of his collage imagery has been sourced. Belgian artist Rene Magritte is undeniably a key influence in his work, evident in how Webb will remove parts of the original image leaving just the outline of the key characters.
