Mix and Match
Chambliss Giobbi "Tanz Fur Mich Salome 1," or "Dance for Me Salome Self Portrait," 2008 - Collage, Bees Wax on Aluminum Panel, 36" x36"
Hampden GalleryTo mix and match is to combine things that are not related. Although the items may all exhibit different characteristics, within the phrase, there is an assumption that items to be mixed and matched are of roughly equal value.
In making his selections for Mix and Match, curator Klaus Postler was a stickler for originality. When it came to craft, he was hard-core. Postler is a collage artist’s collager and the proof is in the proverbial pudding. The work in Mix and Match fits a tall order. Without exception the work is beautifully crafted, fresh, and of the highest caliber.
