Kevin Bourgeois Uses Collage to Depict the Struggle for Identity in a Media-Saturated Age
New York-based artist Impossible Exchange” at Causey Contemporary.
The conceptual bases of collage and assemblage are of crucial importance to Bourgeois’ practice, both in his works that incorporate found objects and in his choice to work with graphite. While the medium is often reserved for sketching or planning, Bourgeois finds its innovative potential by employing juxtaposition and pictorial disruption, techniques typical to collage, to create politically-charged work that transcends illustration.
“Impossible Exchanges” was on view at Causey Contemporary, New York, May 14–Jun. 7, 2015.
