The great­est effects are often pro­duced by the small­est causes. —Lautréamont

This small show may be one of the most impor­tant col­lage shows ever, it demon­strates the mar­vels that can be cre­ated with the mate­ri­als at hand, those objects and images man­u­fac­tured and quickly rejected by the soci­ety of the spec­ta­cle in its never end­ing cycle. Some­times these images have been part of the repres­sive infrastructure…religion, adver­tiz­ing. Col­lage restores their sense of won­der, their true con­nec­tion with the mar­velous. By cre­at­ing a new bal­ance, we refresh our own minds. Not only can we lib­er­ate these images and objects, we can imag­ine, and even cre­ate, lib­er­ated futures.

About the Artists

Pene­lope Rose­mont, Den­nis Cun­ning­ham  and Win­ston Smith embody the cre­ative energy of col­lage each in their own unique way — a dif­fer­ence that demon­strates the incred­i­ble power of collage.

Pene­lope Rose­mont is a long-time sur­re­al­ist, whose recent book is Dreams & Every-day Life. She met André Bre­ton and the sur­re­al­ist group in Paris in the 1960’s, and is show­ing col­lages she calls “insect music.” These are a light-hearted adven­ture, pro­vok­ing thoughts on “sizeism.” That is rel­a­tive scale and the dif­fer­ent worlds that exist all around us. A pluri­verse, char­ac­ters that sel­dom have a chance to meet or inter­act except in col­lage. A newt and Mar­i­lyn Mon­roe, a preying-mantis and African masks.

 

Den­nis Cun­ning­ham, more famous for his work as defender of Black Pan­thers, Judi Bari, and pris­on­ers has long made assem­blages of found objects. Cunningham’s crea­tures are not intel­lec­tual abstrac­tions, cold and remote, as much of sculp­ture is; his crea­tures are per­sonal, humor­ous, beau­ti­ful. Like life they have plenty of rough edges, like liv­ing beings they long for each oth­ers’ com­pany. To be with them is to be pos­sessed by good demons…eudaimonia. Their pres­ence projects and brings good fortune.

 

Win­ston Smith is con­sid­ered by some as one of the more influ­en­tial modern-day col­lag­ists. His works embody, with­out effort, warm humor and black humor, détourne­ment and fan­tasy. His col­lages of the happy peo­ple of the 1950’s com­bine with images and titles that shock one’s sensibility.
