There Must Be More to Life Than This presented by Anthony Gerace — London, UK — 12-24 AUG, 2013

The collages in There Must Be More to Life Than This are built from single sources, usually from advertising from the 1940s-1970s, and speak at once to a longing for coherence and completion and the inability to ever truly achieve it. The work, while mainly portrait-based, nevertheless becomes more about surface and tonality through the obstruction of the subject. It allows the melancholy nature of the images that all of people long since forgotten to come to the forefront.
