Layered Images

About

Artworks with distinct overlays of visual imagery. This layering can be achieved both through the physical build up of translucent mediums (such as paint or glass), or the artist's composition. Barbara Kruger's Untitled (EVIL), for example, superimposes a seemingly benign image of a woman's face with a word that is anything but, while Ryan McGinness layers graphic icons to create a jumbled mash-up of forms—"random access memories," as he calls them.
