The technique of collage is an old, avant-garde standard to visualize the shifty, changeability of modern life. Peripheral Prose at Longhouse Projects, a group show organized by Keith J. Varadi, brings together three artists (Jessica Dickinson, Nathan Dilworth, and Max Warsh) who reject rigid medium specificity in favor of image mash-ups and delicate abstractions. In Dilworth and Warsh’s work, the pattern of a zebra’s skin and the layout of urban architecture are given a loving, visual remix. And Dickinson’s colored pencil, pastel, and graphite drawings on paper, the accumulation of layered time and energy, provide the perfect minimalist counterpoint.
