Oliver Vernon

I’ve posted about Oliver Vernon before. I really like his gouache paintings. He has a show opening on Friday, at Meta Gallery in Toronto.

    Looks even better in person. We’re lucky enough to have seen quite a few Vernon pieces roll through our local gallery – David B. Smith Gallery.

Beautifully combined images in this series by Los Angeles-based artist j.frede. Made with seemingly banal landscape photographs purchased at flea markets and arranged into a single scene, these collages effectively merge different times and places together, creating entirely new landscapes.
