Artist Chad Person, creator of the post-apocalyptic shelter experiment the Resource Exhaustion Crisis Evacuation Safety Shelter that managed to ruffle the feathers of the ATF when he built an improvised shotgun sculpture, has shifted focus to ongoing series of collages made from United States currency. Some of the earliest pieces are part of his TaxCut series, a tongue-in-cheek title stemming from his ability to write off the destroyed currency as part of his taxes. His most recent piece, the kraken shown above, will be on display as part of a group exhibition at Joshua Liner Gallery starting April 19.
