Silhouettes II: Wilhelm Staehle
Silhouettemasterpiecetheatre.com does not give much information about the artist Wilhelm Staehle, but his pieces speak for themselves. An absolutely fantastic series of witty, sarcastic and sometimes poignant images using victorian style silhouettes in the negative with minor text on backgrounds that I don't recognize but look like they are appropriated lanscape paintings from a while back. If I am wrong, strike a blow, my chuck. What I mean to say is, if he painted the backgrounds too, I am reduced to tears & ash.
