Alex Katz cuts it

Discovering Alex Katz collages was a real revelation for me.  I thought all his works were these unique portraits where he captured this strong disembodiment, like animated mannequins, so strange and other worldly.

Then there’s these amazing collages, where he uses a wash to create backgrounds and colours and creates the most evocative images from the simplest shapes. I love the simplicity of it all but yet, it’s so compelling. My favourite is Man with Dog, 1955.
