TOAF: The Collages


With just four days to go until the opening of The Other Art Fair in Brooklyn, I am still making art. The fair, presented by Saatchi Art, runs from 11/8 to 11/11 at the Brooklyn Expo Center in Greenpoint. 130 juried artists are included in the show and I will be there in Booth 20 for the entire exhibition. 

I am including both new art and reworked pieces. One of may favorite series debuting at the fair is a collage series, created on sheet film holders from vintage cameras. I love how they have a built in hook at the top so they can hang as is. Although you cannot tell by the photos, some of the pieces have "flaps" that lift up revealing other collage material and text.

I  have 11 works completed...but may have 1 or 2 more by the time the fair begins.

CENTRAL STATION

DREAMER

FLOAT

FRAGMENTS

EXPEDITE

IRON MOUNTAIN

A RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT

SNOW DRIFT
 

JOURNEY HOME

WELL RED

WHAT ONCE WAS

------------------



The fair opens Thursday night 11/8 from 6pm to 10pm with a private view party. The exhibition continues on Friday 11/9 from 3pm to 10pm, Saturday 11/10 from 12pm to 9pm, and Sunday 11/11 from 11am to 6pm.

These are great. I was trying to pick a favorite ... but I gave up. They're ALL intriguing.

Wish I lived close enough to come and see your booth in person. Wishing you great success.

You SEWED! Unbelievable. These are all incredible, but you KNOW my favorite is Iron Mountain. Rust gets me excited every time, even if it's faux rust.
