Art Schaller, Associate Professor
A bricoleur at heart, Art Schaller has been obsessively exploring collage environments assembled form printed surfaces and found materials. He is currently translating these implied spatial propositions into three-dimensional constructs.
The following are selections from the series Billboard Buildings, 21 collages created by assembling surfaces cut or ripped from printed publications. No augmentation of the surfaces through drawing, painting, or digital manipulation occurs. These works are variations on frontal views of rambling, but ordered, long thin buildings perched on legs and located in rich color and textural space; a modernist Baba Yaga’s hut of sorts.
