Sammy Slabbinck renders dynamic collage prints, combining vintage photographs with contemporary compositional styles. The images frequently feature a retro super model, cut up into pieces and redistributed, playing with exaggeration and proportions. Other times, these models are placed in a reverse context, juxtaposing modern ideals with traditional states of mind. Memorable pieces include a work featuring the giant face of a smiling lady taking over a sunset, and a graffiti-covered model.
