Transient Transfection is a piece of cut paper collage art using images found in vintage magazines and other ephemera that are then dry adhered to paper with a gel medium.  The original image is roughly 20 inches wide by 10 inches tall (not including matte and frame) and was completed in January 2019.

And don’t forget that my brand new book, Everything We Love Is Slowly Becoming Fiction, is out now. Focusing on work created between 2007 and 2017, the book highlights over 120 original collages, album covers and silkscreen posters. It includes a collection of previously released artist interviews from those years, never before seen work in progress images, a new essay by Marta Staudinger (Latela Gallery), forward by Andy Jenkins (Girl Skateboards/Element/Bend Press), and a new conversational interview conducted by fellow collage artist Allan Bealy. Each book is hand numbered and hand signed by the artist. Supplies here at the warehouse are dwindling so please order on before it’s too late. Order yours here.
