heyheyheyhey! happy Sunday to you!

if you are reading this on a Sunday!

if not, happy Monday / Tuesday / Wednesday / the remaining days of the week, to you!!

i love exclamation marks!!!

um, ok. this work is by a brilliant / eccentric / obscenely talented artist called Jean-Robert P.Beffort πŸ˜€

Jean-Robert says ~ ~ ~

My collage art started 20+ years ago with art-mail postcard/letter correspondences with my older brother which still continues to this day. Due to this origin my collages nearly always include both text and images that provide a layered visual and mental narrative (telling a story). I find it essential that both modes exist in union for balance of polarities such as left brain/right brain, magnetic/electric, sound/light, and atlantis/lemuria. What started on my kitchen table has now grown to running a)sp.”A”Β©e Studioβ€’Artβ€’Gallery for the last 5 years in Silver City, New Mexico exhibiting my 2D text/image collages and 3D assemblage sculptures as well as showcasing other local artists.

CHECK JEAN-ROBERT’S FACEBOOK / WEBSITE / GALLERY IF YOU LIKE, OK NICE
