Have you ever seen dinosaurs foraging for neo-impressionists in Georgia O'Keeffe's back-yard? Do you understand the fundamentals of cubicle-ism? Have you witnessed the Sistine bowl-off? We welcome you to Sunday Afternoon, Looking for the Car: The Aberrant Art of Barry Kite.

Barry Kite employs his acute mind, his artist's eye and skill, and his unfailing sense of humor to create collages that skewer the icons of art, history, science, politics, and industry. He uses found imagery and completes each collage by applying his own photographic and hand-coloring techniques. His strangely beautiful images bring together incongruous elements in startlingly powerful visual statements.

Author Alan Bisbort offers explanatory text about each collage presented, but he is careful to remind you that an important part of experiencing the world of Barry Kite is to bring your own interpretative talents to bear.
