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 is based in New York, where he is the Director of Visual Arts & Exhibitions at View Arts in the Adirondack Mountains.

About The Artist
Scale shifts play a vital role in my work. Model space exists as a miniature for a viewer to project into, which acts in opposition to a response elicited from a life size object. The goal is to create a duality of experiencing space both as a projection into a miniature and as a physical experience, comparable to our perception of our surroundings.
