I love challenges and so when Hundred Dollar Gallery asked if I wanted to do a show with local author and dear friend Gary Barwin, I was very interested. I was wanting to do something bookish and so, I decided to create collages out of a set of encyclopedias from 1952. I am allowed to add up to 5 extra pieces of ephemera to each collage but each piece will have paper only from one volume from the set. It’s been interesting to combine such abstract images together to create a cohesive piece. I have a handful more to finish and I am very excited to share so I hope that you will join us at Encyclopedia of Everything.
