This event has ended.

Rough Cut is a group exhibition of eight contemporary artists who use collage as a preliminary stage in their art making process. The show examines the variety of ways that artists use collage, from simplified exploratory forms to highly developed work. Rough Cut will feature one or more collages by each artist, alongside the finished work that results from them. The exhibition offers a glimpse into the artist’s process, both technically and conceptually.

The idea for the show grew out of a consideration of Carrie Moyer’s 2011 show at Canada Gallery, where she exhibited taped black and white collage studies along with the dynamic full color paintings that grew out of them. Moyer’s studies contain the raw elements of the future work, whereas the artist Trevor Winkfield makes elaborate studies that exactly mirror his finished paintings. Considering this contrast of approaches, the exhibition will examine the spectrum of ways in which artists use collage.
