Tabbed information for art piece

Unmasked Nathaniel Axel

Axel creates works that seem to be based on other works, often in layered illustrations which have the quality of superimposition of images. His compositions suggest a link with Japanese tradition, remade into modern symbolisms with bold colours. Axel often works with collages, vacuumed plastic, ink and linen, or etchings to concoct unusual visuals with a sense of fragmentation.
