Spanning a range of materials and mediums, the breadth of the Cherry exhibition documents how collage’s use of bits and pieces of applied materials is unique in its ability to capture physical moments of time: the created or found materials of the Central Coast of California, its pigments and fonts and ephemera. Collage has the ability to bring a tactile, physical experience of human history into the reality-presence of the viewer.
