    Travess Smalley: Capture Physical Presence

Psychedelic cut-and-paste masterpieces in Travess Smalley's new show

Posted by James Cartwright,

If you like your art with a psychedelic twist and an enormous amount of cutting and pasting then Travess Smalley may well be the artist for you. His process is as convoluted as they come, examining process and materials with experimental rigour – printing textures and colours on a deskjet printer before cutting, pasting and rescanning for further digital manipulation. He does this repetitively. The resulting images are utterly striking, traditionally psychedelic in their colour ways yet contemporary in their creation.

Travess’s latest show Capture Physical Presence is on display at Higher Pictures, New York until June 1.
