Friday night, AM was at Cinders Gallery in Brooklyn to check out the opening of “Cutters,” an exciting group show of collage artists curated by James Gallagher. Gallagher, who is a collage artist himself, invited a diverse international selection of more than thirty participants, all of whom create their work by pasting, stapling, tying, sewing, gluing or otherwise assembling different images or items together, either manually or digitally. With so many multifaceted art works, the impact is visually overwhelming when first entering the gallery, but soon the eye acclimates and is able to focus on individual pieces. Standouts included Cinders favorites Jordin Isip, Brian Chippendale and Taylor McKimens, as well as Portland’s Eva Lake, LA’s Matt Lipps and London’s Valero Doval.

Peruse all the images, after the jump.
