DESCRIPTION

Original collage on paper | 2022

Inspired by his late grandfather’s love of music and charting market growth, Michael DeSutter created “Counting Bars.” The collage series takes cues from business graphs and bar charts, reimagining them as visual representations of personal growth. Over a six month period, DeSutter worked with eighteen years’ worth of Fortune Magazines inherited from his grandfather. While sifting through the publications dating from 1954 to 1972, he took clippings of various bars of color and organized them into groupings. To create each collage, DeSutter fanned a set of color bars and allowed them to fall organically onto a paper ground. He used the established locations to inform the final compositions, instilling a sense of movement.
