The Virus Remains Active

My tribute to the great American writer William S Burroughs, primarily known for “Naked Lunch”.

He was a great influence on my art, introducing me to the concept of cut-ups: words and phrases cut up and rearranged in such a way as to draw out a new kind of sense from apparent nonsense.

I’ve employed the technique in many of my collages, often trying to be as ambiguous as possible when it comes to interpretation of my work. People may think I’m lazy making art that’s not specifically about anything but I genuinely enjoy a combination of weirdness for the sake of it, satire, and the Joy of Juxtaposition.

This collage is filled with references that only other Burroughs fans will get, but I hope everyone will enjoy it.
