Joseph Hammer
Joseph Hammer says his mixed media collages are "from the heart." He's a lifelong bookworm, and his works---usually made of pieces from old, salvaged hard- and paperback books--- are a tribute to reading, publishing, the bookbinder's craft, and readers and book owners everywhere, and long ago. Also an elegy to history and the passage of time itself, they are a fine example of the art of recycling. The time worn patina and sometimes faded colors of the materials, the use of scattered words, phrases, alphabets, and languages provide a feast for the eyes and mind.
