Paper Noir

These collages create a micro-narrative from posters, books and drawings. The landscape features familiar but unrecognizable forms, generating pulp sensations of seduction, unease and climactic tension. The works are a conscious acceptance of colliding images and ideas.

On display from November 1 – 30. There will be a reception from 4 – 6 p.m. on Saturday, November 7.
