The Randy Grskovic Distortions of the Past: Collaborations for the Future incorporates a series of vintage snapshots that the Vancouver artist assembled while at various flea markets and antique shops.

Like many artists, Grskovic developed an infatuation with retro images of kitchens, high school classes and beaches. He has added his own personal touch to the collected snapshots however, changing them up with geometric slices that cut up each picture.

While Distortions of the Past does appear to be quite chaotic, there is actually a great sense of order at play here, one that references his emotions, "I make some stylistic cuts depending on the mood that the image projects to me, which is essentially a projection of myself onto the image."
