The collages were born out of Jeanmard's fascination with paper, and he's not discriminating. What would normally be pieces of garbage to most people are treasured items to Jeanmard. Once they’re combined, the resulting conglomerations are clean and sharp, even where the paper is uneven, torn or creased. There's a nice continuity to the show, too — all of the works are done on the same size paper, and all of the collages are enveloped by a significant amount of white space, which helps the somewhat muted colors stand out. Resist the temptation to draw some sort of meaning out of the items used in the collages, from text to recognizable forms such as stamps and maps. This may be a case of a torn envelope being exactly that. 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays. Through January 5.
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: Dec. 7. Continues through Jan. 5, 2012
