About Brian Borchardt
Brian Borchardt is an artist who works with letterpress, papermaking, and all things related to books and paper. His body of work clearly reflects his passion for books, paper, and forms using paper.
The collages are exceedingly deep and textured. They incorporate a diverse range of objects, from antique photographs to number and letter forms, to ceramic and/or printed body parts, to rusted metal and wire. The viewer finds memories, associations, and disparate elements, all in one framed work.
