All Paul Dessau Collage materials are treated to be archival.
Collage is a fine art form in which a variety of materials are blended into a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. Paul Dessau works with recycled materials—archival magazine scrap, printed items, and found objects—to create works of art with a range of colors, textures, and patterns. No paint is used.
Departing from the modern trend toward mechanical and electronic methods of art production. Paul works “gadget-free,” beginning by hand-drawing the initial design and hand cutting tiny pieces of magazine paper and adhering them to the surface. Each collage averages over 1000 pieces of paper.
Subjects include famous people, as well as those chosen by clients for commissioned portraits. He works from both life and photographs.
Each piece is signed and dated by the artist. Most of Paul’s works are available for immediate purchase; pieces can also be commissioned. Portraits, with customer input through the creation process, via email, of loved ones and pets are popular with clients as gifts for special occasions. Prices start at $500.00 for a works from 18" x 24" up to 30" x 40" inches.
