Franz Falckenhouse

Discover intriguing collages by Franz Falckenhouse - designer of the extraordinary poster of this year's edition of the Conrad Festival. Disturbing obvisions emerging, reality collapsing and permanently transformed by the power of imagination, abyss of unconsciousness and surreality captured in a few dimensions simultaneously.
Born in 1975 in Bartoszyce, Poland, and currently residing in Krakow, Franz Falckenhaus studies and graduated with a degree in Information Technology and Computer related Studies. Although he never had any formal training in the arts, Franz always had an interest in photography, film, and collage. His collage works are always composed from selected vintage illustrations and images mixed with found paper materials. He skillfully combines self-made elements such as: backgrounds, shadows, and drawing with cleverly chosen photos to assemble them all together into art. Franz's style obviously shows recognition of his interest and passion with vintage aesthetics. His subject matter contains a sense of humor and a certain nostalgic feel as well. Being a self-taight collage artist, he sees things a little differently.
The exhibition runs from 21st to 27th October 2013.
