Maybe BermudaDiana Behl: Maybe Bermuda

Exhibition Dates: January 19 – March 6, 2015
Artist talk: Monday, January 19 at 7 p.m.

Maybe Bermuda draws its name from a happenstance juxtaposition of collage elements. The works in this exhibition encompass a fusion of multiple sources, acknowledging Henri Matisse’s paper cutouts and William S. Burrough’s literary Cut-Ups. Salvaged printed proofs, forgotten then found scribbled notes, painted and cut paper are culled together to connect disparate fragments. Though, contrary to the writer’s chance-based (Cut-Up) practice, I am most often reconfiguring and re-contextualizing years of collected material in a gestated manner—at times, seeking both a textural harmony and discord.
