REX RAY



I first saw Rex Ray's work 10 years ago in a Metropolitan Home magazine. Up until then collage was nowhere near  my list of favorite media, but his work was so fresh and exciting - I've completely changed my mind about cut and paste:)
10 years later, Rex Ray is still one of my favorite artists. When I saw this book - REX RAY - ART + DESIGN - I couldn't pass it by. I had to have it! It's full of collage magic:) Check it out if you have a chance.

Wow, I've never heard of Rex Ray before. Love those pages full of drops. Ack, it's night time now, but this post made me just want to get to my studio!

I LOVE (!!) Rex Ray's work. I'm yet to buy this book though. Thanks for the reminder. :)

I feel the same about collage, but Rex Ray's work is such an exception - stunning, modern and fun! Now I need to go buy that book.
