Mixed-Media Collages by David Bayus

April 04, 2012

San Francisco-based artist David Bayus produces vibrant and richly layered multi-media collages. He works work with mediums as diverse as digital montage and oil paint, creating an array of tactile qualities ranging sleek flat surfaces to globby paint application. When photographed, the works are again flattened, demanding a firsthand experience with the work to decipher what is digital and what is handmade, an interesting quality that much of collage runs into today when photographically reproduced.
