NEW WORKS IN PAPER COLLAGE
BY PAMELA M. PARSONS
Mar 19, 2016 - May 08, 2016
From tiny fragments of our own visual history –– from scientific diagrams, travel magazines, outdated school texts, and illustrated children's books, to old foxed lithographs, discarded maps, and collected decorative paper scraps –– a little Americana is revealed. Parsons repurposes diverse graphic matter, juxtaposing color and image to create new intricate designs and off–beat narratives. This fresh body of work is delightfully innovative, energetic, and decidedly contemporary.
