Sublime, Surrealist-inspired collage art. While his artistic roots hark all the way back to the earliest experiments of Surrealism, his works, polished, meticulous, and quirkily beautiful, have an unmistakably and distinctly American inflection. "While the collage elements are drawn from many sources, the iconography is American. At times, Gary's images appear anecdotal, but taken in totality, they comprise a unique American portrait gallery designed to help us re-imagine ourselves" (G. A. Wardle). See these photographically-based collage images, and believe. An absolute "must-have" title for Gary Brotmeyer collectors. This title is now collectible.
