Stuart Ringholt: Theatre Stills - Art Collector

Stuart Ringholt, Theatre Stills (Sheet #4; one scene with pincers, men and folded umbrellas). Collage, 31 x 24cm. Courtesy of the artist and Neon Parc, Melbourne.

Consisting of a suite of 51 collages, Theatre Stills repurposes images of art, architecture, recreational and alpine landscapes to create 'sketch images' of a fictional theatre. Almost entirely monochromatic, these intricate works come together in a set of unrealised dramas infused with gothic parlance, as movement studies, costumes, masked figures, and aquatic creatures writhe for attention on the page.

Produced last year while on residency at the Monash University Prato Centre in Tuscany, the suite repurposes Italian print media from the 1960s and 1970s scored from local markets and stores.
