Waterfalls on Waterfalls

Brion Nuda Rosch is a San Francisco based artist best known for his collages, impressive installation work, and multimedia projects. He’s also the artist Little Paper Planes chose to make up their first comprehensive artist publication, following a few months on the heels of their Little Paper Planes Book Series. Their debut volume is a beautiful, slim 90-pages, perfect bound, limited edition catalog of Rosch’s new and older works, laid out collaboratively in order to convey aesthetic alongside of art—both of which are tremendously well cultivated.

From Zachary Royer Scholz’s Foreword:

“Brion Nuda Rosch’s work is inviting yet unpredictable. His diverse combinations of materials gently lead viewers to unexpected discoveries. These deceptively simple works present humorously profound situations- Rosch’s simple act of placing one image of a waterfall on top of another complicates pictorial space, subject-object hierarchy, and combinative logic.”

Brion describes some of his personal project as an artist in fellow artist Jess Wheaton’s interview with him for Little Paper Planes:

“In my work, I’m identifying very mundane shapes and ridiculous things as monuments, not to downplay the importance of existing monuments, just that when you visit a monument you have your own meaning and understanding, you only take a very small part away with you. The person or event that it represents is far too large and infinite to take away the complete meaning. And often monuments are visited in short spans of time—drive six hours, get out look, back into the car type of thing. Art is viewed in a similar way—minus the drive. My monuments are void of meaning. I don’t know if there’s a way that could be somewhat political. “

The book is only the first of many that I’m sure will come from Little Paper Planes’ new publishing division, but it’s an undeniably great start. You can grab a copy here.
