Brooklyn-based collage artist Judith Supine creates vibrant, dynamic and poignant collages using inexpensive art supplies and old printed material. At the Clocktower, Supine creates an environment for a music video with the band Ed Schrader's Music Beat, directed by Jay Buim.
Judith Supine is a collage artist who produces work using an Exacto knife, a pair of scissors, glue sticks and cheap paints. Drawing primarily from old pornography magazines, newspapers and art books, Supine seeks out figural elements which he then rearranges to create unique collages. He concerns himself not only with arrangement, but also with scale; once a collage is completed, it is digitally enlarged and reprinted in greyscale. It is then taken back to the studio to be colorized using acrylic paints.
Born in Portsmouth, Virginia and currently based in Brooklyn, Judith Supine had used art as his primary means of communication with the outside world. He has taken to salvaging printed material which he uses to create colorful, haphazard and poignant collages. In transforming photographs of nude models, celebrities and children into monstrosities, Supine brings attention to the class issues and twisted ideals that run rife in society.
