there's always 727 :P seems like someone is begging me to go see "a friend of a friend of a friend" who finally got some work up there.

I don't know you too well, so I want to ask how you got involved in mixed media art?

i've been 'mixing' for over 10 years now. started in college, just because pure painting seemed so dull to me. i've always loved robert rauschenberg and joseph cornell, who've influenced my style quite a bit.

hmm. i walk about 50 miles a week in my neighborhood collecting stuff to incorporate into my assemblages..yup. i'm a pack rat alright..but, at least i make stuff out of all the crap i accumulate!

i've never heard of 727..transplanted here 3 years ago..
where is it?

that sounds really cool

727 is downtown on the artwalk. the actual address is 727 spring, I think.

I find it interesting how you used a fragment of text. I've often randomly cut-up text in squares and then read it later as a way of focusing (maybe catching that one odd phrase).

Are you familiar with a book called "The Humument"?

i love seeing words and phrases out of context. you're right, it forces you to imagine different meanings and stretches your brain a bit.

no, i haven't heard of that book..
do tell.

the book is called "A Humument" by Tom Phillips. It's not easy to explain, but it mixes painting and words to alter a book into new meaning.

Do a search of "A Humument" and it shows many examples of his work.

It's always strange that artists like that remain obscure. He also has a book of thousands of postcards that I found quite interesting.

A humument is really an amazing book. When I first saw this book years ago it was like a whole new way to look at the possibilities of a book.

Glad you found some large images. It's one of those books that is better to see examples than try to explain.
