Derek Gores is a Florida-based artist who creates intricate collages from recycled magazine scraps, Internet photos, data, maps, and more. Named 'one of the 40 important artists of the New Contemporary Movement', Gores combines the natural beauty of the human figure, the aesthetic of fashion, the angular design of machinery, and a fearless sense of play into his creations. "I like my pictures to barely come together with teasing little details," he says. "In the collages, some of the little bits I use are deliberate, but in most I'm trusting randomness to help build an end result more interesting than I could have planned."
