Wim Maes creates a new reality in his collages. They can be read as a coherent image, but the spectator immediately senses that something isn’t right. The content delivers absurd images, full of humour that are sometimes critical. The shape of Maes’s collages is rather alienating as well. He opts for old fashioned, yellowed black and white pictures but looks at them from a contemporary angle. The collages are playful and resourceful in their combination and the same time convincing in their design.
