Through March, 2012 at the Fairfax Library Meeting Room Gallery—Come experience the captivating and wondrous collages in Narrative Speculation, a new show by Beverlee Burke. Beverlee’s collages are made up of a few elements thoughtfully placed, with an eye for composition. The images often play with the viewer, inviting them into their dream world. Thought-provoking, painterly, and playful, this show is sure to inspire.
From Beverlee’s artist’s statement:
These collages are a selection from my work of the past couple years. In selecting pieces for this show, I looked for themes in style and image. The overall impression I got from these collages is a sense that we’re looking at a single frame in a dream movie. What happened before? What happens next? We can only speculate.
These collages are composed of pure found images. The bits and pieces are all originals. I don’t use photocopies, manipulate size or change colors when I create collages. My only tools are scissors (I have a wide array) and xacto knives; my only materials are magazines and double-stick tape.
Please come have a look—we’d love to see you! Get some art into your life!
