COLLAGE ILLUSION

A self-taught, free-lance artist, Crawford has developed a unique style forging a modern synthesis of Lawrence and Bearden that he calls “Collage Illusion™”.  His work, inspired by the African American experience, is created by hand-cutting subtly shaded color slivers from magazines and painstakingly gluing them to glass to compose an image.  From a distance, the resulting works look lushly painted.  On closer inspection, they are revealed as intricate collages of breathtakingly nuanced detail.  Using only donated magazines Collage Illusion™ is “recycling at its finest.”
