Delight of Uncle Mao by Hugh Musick
IIT Institute of Design’s Hugh Musick was interviewed recently by Scrapatorium‘s Angelica Paez about his passion for collaging and how long he took to find the perfect glue for his art. Here’s an excerpt:
What type of subject matter do you like to use in your work?
So much depends on what I find. I am particularly fond of 19th century lithographic prints of animals and whales in particular. Birds make their ways into my work and among birds, I find myself drawn time and again to crows and swans. The theme of bad romances crop up in a number of the stories that accompany collages with people in them. I like making digital collages that incorporate images of Richard Nixon. I just like to imagine a whole secret life for him.
