We All, paper collage, 5x6ft
I really like these large scale, text based collages by Twin Cities based artist John Alspach. They have a very painterly approach to collage with lots of torn edges and rough texture and a pop-like feel that reminds me of Jasper johns in many ways. He also has some really nice found art pieces, assemblages, and interesting textural paintings. His work has a great decrepit, run-down, urban vibe that I find intriguing.
