This piece was created as part of my ongoing Celestial series of mixed media works. Young Bride is about different vantage points both in time and space. The work is collage, paper, and archival adhesive on heavyweight paper.  It is matted with an archival matte and backing but will require a frame for display.

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.
