Werner Büttner’s Looting Eye



German artist Werner Büttner recently released a new book, the first published overview of his collage work, entitled My Looting Eye. A fan of the pritt-stick aesthetic, Büttner places everyday items in unusual settings, often with witty and amusing results, such as a the lacy red bra hung casually across a horse’s eyes. With an almost Dali-esque appearance, each collage is a happy burst of vintage colour, revealing a slice of the artist’s surreal and rebellious side that emits a questioning nature behind its light hearted front.
