Jefre Harwoods is exhibiting 2 of what he calls his HCPs-Headline Collage Poems, hybrid creations using words,collage,drawing, photos, chance & mood to achieve this final incarnation on canvas. Most people no longer read physical newspapers , Jefre still does & uses his love of words, color, ideas & history…& “ cutting with scissors “ to construct these unique works. All art is a time capsule & these HCPs are that. Jefre feels it is important to capture these strange times- the horrible, ridiculous, & hopeful …” to tell the tale”. He has made over 100 HCPs & they continue to evolve. He thinks of them as post-modern artful, poetic front pages of an imaginary yet too real newspaper…” I read the news today…oh boy!”indeed. Jefre is also a writer living in NYC . He has been published twice in The NY Times & has just completed his second play.
