Tom Smith’s recent collages combine two or more found superhero images which possess special powers and defy physical boundaries. These superheroes are enveloped out of solid, their bodies are impermeable, but by fragmenting and distorting them they become fallible. The images are painstakingly sliced and reconfigured using various geometric patterns. As the new image emerges so do surprising effects, for example, hands may overlap in the same place or the color of a cape merges into the opposing image. The resulting collages depict two figures in a field of vibrating interference.
