About the Show and Museum:
With this second group exhibition at Grant’s Tomb Gallery we celebrate the The Collage Museum of San Francisco. Our vision with this endeavor is to showcase local, national and international artists who work in the medium of collage, photo-montage, assemblage and related disciplines.
There is a long and colorful 200 year history of artists and creative individuals working in this field from the early 19th century and throughout the 20th century as well as an explosion of collage-based artistry in these first decades of the 21st century.
The Collage Museum of San Francisco serves to spotlight these artists’ works and to offer a resource for the artistic community that may let us explore the limitless visions of creative imagination and encourage and expand the Art of Collage.
About the Artists:
Hope Kroll @hopetikvah
Three dimensional collage using antique and vintage materials. Hope was born in Skokie, Illinois and moved out to California when she was 21 years old. She was first enrolled in art school at the age of seven where she trained in oil painting. Hope received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Illinois, Champaign- Urbana,IL in 1990. She obtained her Masters of Fine Arts in 1992 from the San Francisco Art Institute. She has lived in Paso Robles, CA with her husband Gary for the past 17 years.
Locative Art and Paper collage. (you don’t have to call it collage if the term shocks you).
Michael Tunk @tunkcollage
Michael Tunk takes photographs and magazines from the 1800’s-1980’s and re-contextualizes them into something beautiful. He takes refused detritus and spins a yarn of gold. He takes the weight from a hoarders home and fixes it into aesthetic candy. His pieces are never photoshopped, he uses only Xacto blades and what’s left of the bones in his wrists. Buy now before carpel tunnel grinds his hands to an octogenarian pugilist’s paws.
Dan Hartman aka “Pancreas Supervisor” is a self taught collage artist from Minneapolis MN. He uses regular house scissors, spray mount glue, glue sticks and as many random books and magazines as he can get his hands on. Hartman started out doing smaller dada inspired portraits but has since moved on to much larger pop/surrealist style landscape pieces. His main goal is to give people something interesting to look at, something with a lot of depth and seamless flow, art that you could walk around in if you were only a few inches tall.
Cut and paste collage artist from south Texas with an obsession for weirdness, pizza and jokes. Custom artwork and screen printing from space. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Human Wreckage @thehumanwreckage
The artist currently lives, cuts and creates in NoWhere Fast USA.
Justin Angelos @justinangelos
Justin Angelos was born in 1971 in Los Angeles, Ca. After spending many years on the road with a job in the tradeshow industry Justin now lives in Burlingame, Ca where he is a fulltime stay at home dad and artist.
Life, death, loss and rebirth play a major role in the forming of many of his ideas. Inspired by the current state of our world and the debris man leaves in his wake Justin’s palette is often made up of found and discarded objects collected in abandoned houses, vacant lots, roadsides and second hand stores. Primitive culture, the animal world and today’s fast paced and disposable society continue to add fuel to his work.
Frank Morison @fmorison
Frank Morison is a collage artist based in Oakland, CA. His work strives to examine the political economy of lived experience in America.
Bowling4Rhinos (Carolyn Gair) @bowling4rhinos
Carolyn Gair has been a story artist in the animation business for over 20 years working with such studios as Disney, Warner Bros and Universal. Strengths include ability to create and board sequences without pages, workshop gags and milk emotion as well as execute good staging and strong acting.
The works of the late René Apallec will be displayed for the first time in the United States. Mysterious and obscure, his compositions call out to us from a long vanished world that has since been swept away by the tumultuous era of the Great War. Come and explore this rare glimpse into the mind of a lost and forgotten artistic genius.
The works of most of these artists are featured on Instagram.
