Recycledelic Pro Fusion Art by Dickens 44 at Marin Civic Center
Date: Monday, April 4, 2022
Time: 8:00am - 5:00pm Monday - Friday
Dickens 44 has been creating innovative works of art since the 1960s. His art is vibrant, colorful, crazy, and unique, all with a nod to the environment. He coined the term “Recycledelic” referring to his “glue art” mosaic and fusion pieces created from thousands of various recycled, found, and salvaged objects he has collected, scavenged, and assembled for decades. His artworks often feature old telephones, bottle caps, toys, seeds, computer parts, and just about anything else he can get his hands on. His works are intricate, ornate, and precisely detailed to say the least.
This exhibition includes mosaic works of art created with found objects glued to board or canvas; fusion works which combine mosaic and painting together; and visionary acrylic paintings framed in wood or bamboo including some with fusion frames that utilize found objects. Many of his works are influenced by his more than two decades of living in the Philippines and Thailand and in Central America, and all his works respond to the fragility of the environment by literally turning trash into artistic treasure.
Exhibition located on the 1st and 3rd floor galleries at Marin County Civic Center, 3501 Civic Center Drive, San Rafael.
