Eddie Fumasi: Collages And Collections
December 1 - December 15, 2007
An old man has a dead gull
on his chest. The dog under the bed is emerging from an
envelope that has a picture of a dead bird on a rock.
Hovering above the entire scene and adding to its
mystery, is a 3-D photograph of three cranes, one in
flight. Although not exactly festive, "Pass" is just one
of the more than 30 pieces of Eddie Fumasi's work in the
form of collages. Eddie Fumasi is a very private person
who has managed to quietly create his collages over the
last 40 years. The images are seductive, charming and
quite often somewhat disturbing. Mr. Fumasi has a dry,
biting wit that is clearly visible in his work. Fumasi's
collages are small, intricate compositions that require
both investigation and introspection. Early pieces were
created using postcards and have evolved to include
images mounted on reflective surfaces to catch light.
Also on exhibition were his collection of more than 300
vintage cardboard "village houses." The houses were made
during the 40s, 50s and 60s for holiday displays.
