Russell prince: assemblage with vintage frame 35 1/4 x 41 1/2″
On view through July 1, 2016
Russell Prince, a hometown talent who has exhibited at the Menil Bookstore and the Jung Center, solos at Devin Borden Gallery, presenting recent collages which could pass for works by a mid-century master. Formed from disassembled, re-purposed book jackets and spines, they exude a post-cubist, geometric vibe and often bear subtle text fragments. Stoic and handsome, Prince’s timeless collages allude to the palpable presence of the past.
