A Strange Meeting : Suite Of 12 Collage Works

'How To Join' is just one of 12 new collage works in this slightly dangerous, oftentimes sexy and bird-in-hand deadpan series by American artist Matthew Rose.

'How to Join' is an advertisement for a blue and naked man walking his 'bird' – a bemused and bespectacled librarian not-so-secretly observes it all.

Deceptively simple, these collages draw out a fragmented narrative typical of Matthew Rose's work. Words cut and married to a range of odd characters, provide a dozen theatrical one-acts of absurd encounters. In Matthew Rose's world, when parties meet, an emotional oil spill ensues.

"It's a wonderful world," says the artist, "if you can read – and cut and paste – between the lines."
The collection, 'A Strange Meeting,' is the first in a series of original works created for and offered exclusively by Keep Calm Gallery. Matthew Rose's work was recently featured in the just-published MASTERS: COLLAGE (Lark Books/US).
