Info

 Hi, I'm Jack.

Born in Morgantown, WV.
Living in Minneapolis, MN.


    Process

     I started this shop to be able to provide affordable fine art to anyone interested.

    These collages start with me physically cutting images I collect from magazines in a gestural process to compose visual poems. 
    I love seeing the razor's mark to reminds that these are handmade and have dimension.
    The posters are made from a high resolution scan of the original collage and printed on museum quality matte paper.

    I aim to make honest work that anyone can appreciate while still having the capacity for intellectual viewing.
