EDITION PATRICK FREY

Cary Loren: Polaroids

Edited with interview by Cameron Jamie.

Cary Loren: Polaroids

In Polaroids, Michigan-based artist, musician, writer and bookstore owner Cary Loren (born 1955) interweaves snapshots of his 1970s Detroit entourage along with photographs of his elaborately staged collage assemblages of prints, TV stills, magazine covers, stickers, movie posters and other ephemera. This particular medium allows for direct manipulation of seemingly unrelated visual idioms into pictures of skillfully artistic quality.

As a founder and member of Destroy All Monsters, as well as owner of Book Beat, Lorenís variety of works assembles into an impressive pictorial altar of memento mori, assimilating his obsession with pop and trash culture, glamour, transience and death. This narrative is extended by the inclusion of an interview conducted by American artist Cameron Jamie in cemeteries beside the graves of Lorenís idols (including Vampira, Ed Wood Jr. and Jayne Mansfield), where Lorenís own life story is told against the biographical background of those buried icons of pop culture.

Into the meat grinder

Into the meat grinder

Featured spreads are from new release Cary Loren: Polaroids, published by Edition Patrick Frey. Collecting photos of the legendary Detroit-based Destroy All Monsters founder and Book Beat bookstore owner's collage work, assemblages and snapshots of his 1970s entourage, this book also comes printed with three different covers and an interview with artist Cameron Jamie, conducted in several cemeteries beside the graves of Lorenís idols. Jamie comments, "Your collage work has always had this sense of wickedness warping low and pop culture imagery. Itís like putting images into a meat grinder to mash up and reshape them by cooking them into another setting of your own by retelling and rewriting a story," then later asks, "Do you find your work beautiful?" Loren responds, "Thereís this balance of the world Iím trying to create and resolve. Iím trying to achieve something of what I think is an artificial kind of beauty, yeah." continue to blog
