Opening Reception and Artist's Talk - 'Andy Burgess: Paper City'

Thursday, January 17, 2013 - 5:00pm to 7:00pm

Andy Burgess, who describes the style of his collages as "pop geometry," references a golden age of American advertising from the 1930s to the 1960s. Meticulously constructed using hundreds of pieces of cut-and-pasted paper made from vintage materials and a variety of antique ephemera, Burgess' work creates a sense of nostalgia for the world that consumers aspired to, not the one they actually inhabited.
