"Reach" was created as part of my "Vignettes" series of mixed media works. This piece is meticulously hand cut from vintage paper and includes embroidery elements. The work is comprised of collage on heavyweight paper with archival adhesive and thread. It is matted with an archival matte and backing but will require a frame for display.  The image dimensions are 6x4, and the outside matte dimensions are 10x8.

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.
