Collages Collages surveyed a series of thirty-six small-scale collages created by Los Angeles artist Roy Dowell over the course of one year, beginning in the summer of 1991. All of the images in the series are 6 × 9 inches and are composed of scraps of found paper–used handbills, remnants of billboards, advertisements, and posters: the recycled detritus of everyday life. Using photo-based reproductions as source material, the artist’s collages suggest meaning as a hybrid of popular culture and a lexicon of abstraction.
