Loving the geometric compositions of Dutch illustrator/designer/artist Louis Reith. The Amsterdam-based artist create drawings, collages, paintings and installations.Â The abstract compositions are linked to his fascination with every aspect of the printed book.Â On an interview with LVL3 he says this about his process:
â€œIt really depends on what Iâ€™m working on. The source material for my collages is derived from vintage books, in which not only subject and size play a role, but also the printing technique and color. The books are stripped from their covers and subject to observant deconstruction. What remains are loose pages and spreads that are processed, with their actual compositions as a coincidental starting point. Itâ€™s really about observing, shifting, thinking and taking time, letting it rest before I make the final decisions.â€
More of his work can be viewed on his website and on Instagram.
