James Springall uses a scalpel and glue to appropriate found imagery in order to take it out of context and create alternate narratives. This reordering of existing material subverts its original message to give it an entirely new identity whilst often making modern-day social commentary.
Springall’s work has been shown at the Royal Academy of Arts, Saatchi Gallery and in group shows across Europe. He recently curated two exhibitions of Contemporary Collage: Tribute to Viborg, 1018 - 2018, at the Contemporary Collage Art Museum in Denmark, and The International Weird Collage Show at Jealous Gallery, London. His work has been featured by publications including AnOther and Huck, and is profiled in The Age of Collage 3, published by Gestalten and released in 2020.
