Working with vintage paper ephemera—comic books, victorian illustrations, magazines, prayer cards, and old dictionaries, Philadelphia-based collage artist Greg Ephemera Trout breathes new life into forgotten images. Each work captures a decisive moment in a narrative left almost entirely to the viewer’s imagination.
British artist Tim Pugh makes elaborate artwork on site out of sticks, leaves, pine cones, and other found materials in nature. It sort of reminds me of Tibetan Buddhist sand paintings and Robert Smithson’s Spiral Jetty.
Joanne Grune-Yanoff makes elegant, airy pieces using forms taken from the human body, casting them organic materials such as honeycomb, wax, and moss, and arranging them into poetic sculptural works.
