Cut & Paste at Joy Gallery


“Cut & Paste”
20 February-5 March 2016

The art of collage is an opportunity to rewrite history. Through the action of cut and paste we are given the ability to reinvent the preexisting, to generate something very much one’s own accounts. Our cultural memory can be altered and twisted through the hands of an artist, working with familiar images that are taken apart and put together into something new transforms our previous perceptions. Collage teaches the artist and viewer to open their mind, an apple isn’t always an apple, it can be whatever our imagination desires. “Cut & Paste” was curated by Caroline Augusta.

Participating artists include: Amy Summer, Andrew McGranahan, Bedelgeuse, Caroline Augusta, Dana Fortune, Derek Macario, Ellie Rex, Eugenia Loli, Evlyne Wong, Irina & Silviu Székely, Nil Ultra, John Vochatzer, Johnny Smith, Justin Angelos, Kate Cuthbert, Kylea Borges, Maike Luedenbach, Meta, Nic Courdy, Resatio, Scorpion Dagger, Shayna Yasuhara, and Tyler Spangler.
