Stefan Gunnesch: Slipping Under Your Skin

Artist Stefan Gunnesch

Words Tom Czibolya

Human perception is nothing but a never-ending clash with reality – this is not the first time we feature Stefan Gunnesch’s gorgeous collages and definitely won’t be the last either. Going monochrome, his new pieces feel like they are the love childs of a beautiful mind and a heavy heart.

Stefan has an unique vision: his works may be pleasing to the eye, yet they do carry the uneasiness of something unspoken. With his new series, he went even further, opening a door to a dangerous place entirely built out of memories. The best advice that we can give is to look at his work as one would look at a rare flower blooming: with curiosity, patience and wonder.
