Redacted Revelation

But God caused knowledge to be given to Adam and those with him, so that the kings of chaos and the underworld might not lord it over them." [--Jesus]”

Balladeer Goes South



I am grateful that a mixed medium collage of my own is sharing space with so many extraordinary works, from artists from the States, Canada, and Europe. The Exhibition opens today at the Foundry Art Centre in St. Charles, Missouri. A link to the event is listed below.

Putting It Together

Here in Toronto at Gallery Arcturus there are two collage shows - one in the Genesis Gallery the other in the Collage Gallery.

Searching For Material

Perhaps I am better suited to be a hunter-gatherer, one of the most engaging aspects of collaging is stalking for material to work with. I go to thrift stores, second-hand book stores and garage sales to look for textures, images, and frames to use. The hunt before the preparing of a meal.
Sometimes there are odd pieces of wood that cry out to be used- below are two examples of mixed medium collages on wood.

Sometimes cut and paste paper inquiries do not make the 'cut'!

I have recently experimented using collages which did not work out, by adding a digital aspect.

Jamming with Floyd Kuptana




Inuit Artist Floyd Kuptana is a regular off and on again contributor at Gallery Arcturus. This past winter Floyd was sculpting with deborah harris outside of Gallery Arcturus. They worked and we
 popped out at different times to capture the process with our phones, which was later edited into the above short.

While this was unfolding the Inuit Art Quarterly was delivered to the gallery and we got to view the collaboration which Floyd and I did.


                               Floyd did the painting and I the collaging.

                             Does that mean I am an unofficial Inuit now?

Reading ones' obituary.

Shhh a joker in disguise.

A shadow looking for matter.

Visual Sound Poetry - EBOHA- Gallery Arcturus



For the past 8 years deborah harris and I have been making collage videos
at Gallery Arcturus. We worked with our collages and other collagists images to create them.
We have created over a hundred shorts so far. Our collaboration name
is EBOHA and can be found on our Gallery Arcturus YouTube channel under Visual Sound Poetry.


excerpt from ConstructIng an Identity

CONSTRUCTING AN IDENTITY

0.
So many tales
to support
me-ness

1.
Sitting down, nothing comes.
Quietly breathing the hand
and the mind anticipates
a drop of nothing.

Nothing responds;
Nothing writes;
Nothing reaches;
the waves of Nothing
wash over me.
2.
there is an empty road,
following it a birthing end.

Beware,  suburbs and their malls!

"LOOK BUSY GOD IS COMING"

There was a poster in a public bathroom which on first encounter seemed  funny 

                                                                                                 - later it haunted me.

name in vain

perhaps you are the one who was not me (question mark)

i heard my name in relationship with words that implied  i had provided a commentary  to a commentary from some one who was not me (period)

(quote) eron said a word following a word following a word is another word (unquote)

i said that (question mark)

when did i say that (question mark)

 in which context did I say that (question mark)

hmmm I do not know about that eron (dot dot dot)

this moment seeing no comment
