Ryan Dunn at Vyner Street Gallery

Ryan Dunn's collages use the language of advertising photography to create unnerving images that can evoke a range of emotions.

We've seen a lot of collage this year, not least Geoffrey Farmer's overwhelming Life Magazine Cut-outs from 1935-1985 at Documenta 13, but Dunn's work uses a less-is-more attitude to create images that are just as memorable, and just as rewarding of your time.

Sadly, his show at Vyner Street Gallery was only very brief, but as he's been officially labelled 'up and coming' (thanks in part to a role in the Cultural Olympiad) his is a name you will definitely see again.
