Show Off is an original piece of art by artist, Adam Taylor Smith. In this collage the artist uses a found music sheet as the background and then applies a found vintage image of a young woman.  The penguins are painted directly, and create a fun juxtaposition that lets the viewer apply a narrative and tell a new story.

The image measures approximately 28cm x 20cm.

Adam Taylor Smith is a London based artist whose work captures his love of literature and storytelling. “I like there to be a sense of narrative about my work. However, I don’t necessarily want to tell the story, I want to provide the viewers with the material to create their own”.

He trawls through archives of old forgotten photographs and anonymous images. “There’s something so intriguing about an image that has been captured by an unknown hand, the vision of an unknown eye. There’s also often a lot of humour about an image from the past. They seem strange and surreal – often our immediate reaction to these past peculiarities is to laugh”.

The colour and vibrancy that the birds inject into the page is unexpected and somehow immediately yanks it from the past – making it contemporary. It also becomes surreal and hopefully sparks the imagination of the viewer.
