Lurking on Trendland. That’s how I found collage artist Jose Romussi. At first his embroidered photos reminded me of the vintage Spanish postcards my Nanna used to have on display beneath her glass-topped coffee table. Flamenco dancers with their skirts stitched in vibrant colours would stare up at me and my sister as we drank our tea and sucked on frozen Mars bars to see who could make them last the longest (a game I always lost). Jose’s embroidered photos, however, are a little less beautiful and a lot more subversive. Not quite grandmother material, but delicious all the same.
