Jason Kearney constructs surreal pieces of modern digital collage art under the name CUTS. Aside from that he is also a visual artist that creates polemical art using mixed media, dealing primarily with current issues that are considered to be misrepresented in contemporary politics and the mainstream Irish media.
CUTS gathers imagery from varied sources, both online and in print - Russian Constructivist posters, American 1930’s advertisements, retro postcards, 15th century Japanese paintings, medieval art … any isolated part from other artist’s works that catches his eye, he brings these to new life. From there he seeks to build a narrative within a three dimensional plane, to construct a surreal world in which the viewer can step into. In addition to repurposing other artists material that spans centuries CUTS has recently begun using his own photography to create geometric digital collages.
