A solo exhibition of collages created with discarded discarded, patterned security envelopes.

Opening Reception: Saturday October 4th, 7pm
Free. Refreshments will be served.

Security envelopes are used to camouflage sensitive and private documents. Their decorative patterns make it impossible to read what is inside. The secrets contained within these envelopes form the dull, bureaucratic infrastructure for contemporary life. The artist creates landscapes with this material diverted from the waste-stream.These collages represent a fantasy in which the material of the reliable, boring disappointments of life, are transformed into a means of escape.

Date/Times:October 4 through November 1. Open Saturday and Sunday 12p.m. – 5p.m. and by appointment.

371 Court Street, 2nd Floor, Brooklyn, NY. F & G Carroll Street Stop, in Carroll Gardens.
