Shane Wheatcroft

I’ve been making art in some form or another since I was a kid. So far, I’ve mainly worked in painting and screen printing, but in the last couple of years, I’ve concentrated more on mixed media and collage. My ideas tend to be led by the images I find, so I’ll start with an image I’m drawn to and randomly add pieces until an idea starts to emerge, adding more collage pieces, paint, found objects etc. to reinforce the final concept. Often, the initial image won’t feature in the final piece, but it ’s been invaluable as a starting point.

I’ve always loved books and collecting, so collage has given me a great excuse to spend loads of time hunting through second hand bookshops, charity shops, and antique markets for material. I’ve always admired artists who use collage in their work such as Peter Blake, Hannah Hoch and Jamie Reid, but it was discovering the work of John Stezaker which really opened my eyes to the possibilities of collage and how even just a couple of cleverly juxtaposed photographs can create a powerful new image.
