Collage Works from Javier Pinon

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 09, 2014
'My work has had a tendency to be a bit autobiographical. Not literally, but under the surface. My reality or state of mind at the time that the collages are made is reflected in the psychology of the work and the stories it tells. For example, the Minotaur was at one time an important personal symbol.

And his name is Travis Bedel... well, he wasn't in our class, but he does have a better imagination with science.

The exhibition runs from March 15 to April 26, 2014, with an opening reception on Saturday, March 15 from 6 to 8 pm.
