Manipulated imagery from the New York Times creates hundreds of textured pixels

Artist Shanti Grumbine has her own technique of slicing materials and newspapers into distorted imagery to create an end piece. Her series ‘Looking Awry’ uses front-page images from the New York Times. Printing the images into a large format, Grumbine then cuts and divides each image into hundreds of smaller pieces, before rearranging them and mounting the squares onto a wooden dowel.

The giant pixelated artworks create interesting patterns, with some of the pixels being replaced by tiny square mirrors too. The artist explains the project, saying, “The wall reliefs become monuments to the untold levels of mediation between my creative acts and the rest of the world”.
