HOLD IT WITH REGARD, MORGAN LAPPIN
Posted on December 5, 2014 by Editorial Staff
Oh, talents! A fresh smell of ‘thenextbigthing’ was in the air when Morgan Jesse Lappin presented his works to The Harlow. Hold On With High Regard will host his work. We suggest you discovering this artist and his webpage. ‘When making collage pieces the images I use come mostly from old encyclopedias, and other older publications. I use nothing more than a physical cut and paste/tape method with all my work. Throughout the years I’ve adopted a few different styles of collage and am always looking for fresh ways to present my work. I spend probably 85% of the time cutting and collecting images and the rest of the time actually making work. I have hundreds of categories with thousands of pre-cut images in folders ready to go. It’ll just take a few more life times to get to it all.’
Morgan Jesse Lappin, collage artist/musician living in Brooklyn. Collage an OCD passionate since 2007. In December 2013 he put together the Brooklyn Collage Collective, now over 30 members strong.
