Flower Arrangements

 
In Joe Garvey’s intriguing new series, he collages sports stars with flower and plants: The background of a Babe Ruth baseball card has been replaced by daisies, and Michael Jordan dribbles amidst an arrangement of tiger lilies. “I’ve always loved plants and mixing them with the basketball images has been really satisfying,” Joe says. “Taking two beautiful things to make a new image is exciting for me.” Joe started collecting old photo books a few years ago, and now uses his extensive files to create these juxtapositions. “I take a few images from the cache that I find interesting and start fussing with them,” he explains, “sometimes it takes me a few minutes, sometimes a few hours, even days to be finally happy with a composition.” Joe will soon publish a zine through Done To Death publications, which features collages of vintage sports memorabilia auction catalogs with images of flowers, plants and nature. In the meantime, you can purchase his recent T-shirt collaboration with Deer Dana here, which features his Snoopy illustration on the front and a portrait of John Baldessari on the back. Baldessari is one of the artists who most inspire Joe’s work, along with Sol LeWitt, Stuart Davis, Clyfford Still, Keith Haring, Chuck Close and Ed Ruscha.
