Jasper de Beijer at Asya Geisberg Gallery

Wow, what a powerful show! The Jasper de Beijer exhibition, Marabunta, at Asya Geisberg Gallery is astounding.

de Beijer's photographs look like dramatically distorted collages, although they are constructed from an elaborate process of creating models in his studio out of paper and other materials.  There is a vibrant and vital sense of destruction and reconstruction in his work, an intense reflection on history and violence. The overall effect is breathtaking.
