Born 1956, New York, New York; lives in Los Angeles, California

Armed with scissors, paper, ingenuity, and a camera, Lewis Klahr animates the secret life of images. His method is simple, practically archaic: clipping images from vintage comic books and magazines, he arranges his materials on the floor of his garage, films them on 16mm film, then edits the footage into kaleidoscopic pseudonarratives. Through this primitive collage technique, Klahr practices a subtle and mysterious form of cultural archaeology, literally sifting through stacks of faded pop culture in search of lost narratives, suppressed potentials, and trapped significance.
