Collages: Exploring Narratives
Rochester Contemporary Art Center
137 East Ave.
Apr 1, 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Through a new series of collages, this overseas (Hawaii) artist reveals his passion for earthly pleasures and preservation. Manny has used the process of making collages to creatively purge his growing and “obsessively” collected magazine archive. He has attempted to employ collage as a way to reuse and recycle. For this series he challenged himself to make one collage per day for a period of time, focusing on a fast light hearted process. The narratives told and the stories perceived are playful, eye opening and inspiring. In addition, he answers: “what do we do with piles of old print media?”
Exhibition continues through May 13th.
