“Parts is Parts: Assemblage & Collage” features great examples of combination and amalgamation.
The work of these seven artists uses found images in their work. Lubomir Tomaszewski is a professor at UB who uses rocks and stones to make unusual creations. Historically, Pablo Picasso first utilized the idea when he pasted a printed image of chair caning onto his painting titled Still Life with Chair Caning (1912). Marcel Duchamp is thought to have perfected the concept several years later when he made a series of ready-mades, consisting of completely unaltered everyday objects. Since then, many artists have had a studio practice with found objects.
Please join us to enjoy common objects in uncommonly beautiful works of Art.
