Eva Lake / TypeFace: collages, 2017

Exhibition at frosch & portmann in June 2017












I'm not really a graphic artist but I enjoy looking at graphics - and putting a different twist on mass communication. In my collection of books and magazines is an old art directors book - I enjoyed looking at types for a long time without really planning on putting them to any use. Then one day as I kept reading throughout the book, which made explanations "about the type face," I saw the future. Those pages became a vehicle for my ongoing reconstruction of beauty, glamour and intellectual grandeur. Plus the fact that women were often categorized as a "type."
