Out of the scrap piles of Neil’s studio comes this bold, new collection of vibrant, dynamic and engaging collage work on paper.
“I’ve always found it difficult to throw away even the smallest scraps of old book covers, especially when they’re embossed or have some other distinguishing quality like texture or color that makes them special. I’m now finding myself getting lost in my large scrap pile searching for sets of organizing principles by which these pieces become art.”

You can contact me directly at neil@neilpowell.com for more information about the work. Visit my shop at ginhillshop.com Working in the medium of old, discarded book covers, my work explores new social, cultural, and political narratives through themes of relatedness and identity. By juxtaposing the new and the old -- new art from old materials -- voices across time speak to one another, thereby opening avenues toward meaning. I like the visitor to enter a disparate world of language, typography, and illustration styles that captures the eye and demands it to move back and forth among layers looking for signals, signs and clues. I aim for my art to culminate in a visual treatise on the recycling and renewal of popular culture. The book covers are carefully cut apart and pieced together by mounting to wood panel.
