Description

Bruce Conner (American, 1933-2008).

This portfolio is offered unframed.


Beginning about 1959, Bruce Conner began to secretly piece together paper collages using 19th-century wood engravings which he had collected or accumulated. His working method was not unlike that used to make the film and assemblage for which he had become well-known. Taking advantage of the public’s ignorance of this new and seemingly disparate body of work, Conner decided to attribute the collages to yet another artist, Dennis Hopper. The unwillingness of a dealer to exhibit the work under another’s name and the unwillingness of the artist to reveal his identity, led to their relative obscurity.


It was not until the late '60s that the wood engraving collages were resurrected. Conner returned the collages to their original printed state, producing 26 etchings bound in three black leather volumes and titled collectively THE DENNIS HOPPER ONE MAN SHOW VOLUMES I - III. Acting simultaneously as artwork and as foil for a larger conceptual project, this series is considered by many to be among Conner’s major works.
