May 2019 First Friday Art Walk

John Kay will be the featured artist for the month of May showcasing his series titled: “From Barcelona to Portland Urban Works”. John is an artist that focuses on bridging the gap between photography and fine art in a new unique way. After several years of darkroom black and white photography, John decided to incorporate colorful torn posters to create decollages. The abandoned left-for-dead fragments of posters come together as one piece, only subtracting and adding nothing. They are meant to represent the process of living, dying and transformation.
