Photomontage

 

a photographic print obtained by printing from two or more negatives. Graphic material is frequently used in photomontages. In the mechanical method, the desired images are cut out of photographs, adjusted by means of enlargement to the necessary scale, glued onto a piece of paper, retouched, and then rephotographed. In the projection method, images from several negatives are printed in succession on photographic paper; masks are often used in succession to cover individual areas of the negative. Photomontages are extensively used in creating posters, advertisements, and political cartoons. Outstanding masters of the photomontage technique include A. S. Zhitomirskii, G. G. Klutsis, V. B. Koretskii, L. M. Lisitskii, and A. M. Rodchenko (USSR) and John Heartfield (German Democratic Republic).

It's hardly a spoiler to reveal that they never find a watercolorist but, inevitably, a practitioner of photocollage. Robert Heinecken's own decidedly unprecious and even violently vulgar revised and compromised magazines were the standouts in this show of mostly younger artists (Erik Frydenborg, Nicolas Guagnini, Wade Guyton, Leigh Ledare, Amanda Ross-Ho, and Collier Schorr) who, in one way or another, seem rather bashful when compared to their predecessor's brilliant depravities.

Gysin's grid connects him to but also distances him from that structure's modernist lineage, for in his hands it generates qualities strict modernists suppress: depth, temporality, and, at times, reference (particularly to the Centre Pompidou's facade, the subject of a couple of delicately tinted 1977 gouaches with photocollage).
