The University of Colorado Health Sciences Library will be hosting a display of small-scale collages by Chicago artist Jay Zerbe in its 3rd Floor Gallery.  The show, “Abstract Juxtapositions” will run from Feb. 1 through April 30th.

On display will be about 40 items dating from the last ten years.  According to Zerbe, “Collages, just by their (usual) small scale, invite an intimate relationship, with the artist as well as the viewer.  Unexpected relationships develop because of the juxtaposition of materials used.  Intuitive decision-making is inherent to the process.  Painted papers, graphite, ink, crayons, acrylic paint, found paper, and archival prints of my original materials and photographs generated and altered via the computer comprise my collage resources.”

The 2nd edition of a survey publication of Zerbe’s collages from 2003-2012  is now available at lulu.com.  Plan to visit the Library and experience this intimate, immediate show.
