April Gertler

I love April Gertler's collages. There is something wildly funny and a little unsettling about them. She's a German born, California-raised Berliner, and she's got a deft touch with a pair of snippers. I think it takes cohones to rip into an old photograph (found or inherited) and subvert it like this.
