“Tornado Alley” Collage
Joe Castro, 2012
Paper, Adhesive
13" W x 15" H

Freelance graphic designer and artist, Joe Castro, works at his own Red Attic Studios in Prospect Park, PA, mainly servicing clients with their branding and graphics needs. But when he gets the itch to work with his hands and get off the computer, Castro reaches for his scissors. Inspired by Neo-Dada artist Ray Johnson and by the visceral work of Dash Snow, he creates collages to free himself from the constraints of pixels. He moves around the cut-outs freely until he is satisfied with the composition. In addition to creating collages, Castro also paints and does illustration.RE
