“Collage Social” 4-16-15
Lonnie Potter visits the Alternative Spacetime Residency in April to bring visual conversations on collage-making to the community.
Lonnie’s pieces are single cut-out shapes, taken from magazines that are pasted on white surfaces. The glossy magazine paper set against white paper gives us the knee-jerk desire to call them “collages”. And while the images are indeed from magazines and his scissors are the means to cut them out to paste them onto the paper, these are as much collages as single words are poems. But to think of Lonnie Potter’s work in the context of “collage” is precisely what delivers us to their depth. Lonnie Potter’s collages are single words that carry the scent of the original poem they came from. Familiarity is the soul of these powerful one-word poems.
Join us (time to be announced) at a community table of collage-making supplies to spend some time with Lonnie and have some drinks during his stay at the Alternative Spacetime Residency.
