"Vision Room" was inspired by my recent body of work, "In Starlight." The piece is about our perception and interpretation of space in terms of the cosmic and the relative present. This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished black edges. It comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know John

John’s meticulous collages are crafted from vintage materials such as old textbooks, magazines, found paper, and even embroidery. The resulting images exist in another world characterized by a magical, cinematic quality. Each piece creates a unique story that teeters on the edges of surrealism and science fiction. The viewer is left contemplating the relationship between the shapes and figures in the scenes. John’s collages are further marked by their clean aesthetics and precise execution. He works out of studios in both New York and Nebraska, where he is an Assistant Professor at Peru State College.
