50 year old, New York City based artist, Erica Baum, creates "found collages" from the pages of sixties and seventies paperbacks. Her carefully composed and photographed compositions shifts the medium from literary to visual.
For her latest series Baum cruised bookstores for retro-seductive texts. Flipping the pages open, she revealed a collage of image, text, and ink-bleed edge.
Baum shows with Bureau Gallery on the very East of the LES: www.bureau-inc.com
