Revolo finds his own voice by creating collages made of cut and torn photographs either taken or found anywhere. He then reassembles them into visually powerful statements on today’s way of life. The artist’s subject matter encompasses our surroundings, especially of a social or cultural nature. It is not the aesthetics of the image that define his style, but rather the ability to unmask the “personal mythologies” of both the artist and the viewer. Such narratives can be intimate, ironic, or detached, but they are always thoughtfully incorporated into his work through the way in which he melds photography, printmaking, and text.
