DAVID KAMM
Pages from a Small World, print collage, 7.5" x 5.25", 2002

David Kamm earned his MA (1986) and MFA (1988) in printmaking from the University of Iowa. He has shown his work extensively in the Midwest and abroad. Collections that hold examples of his work include the International Museum of Collage, Assemblage and Construction in Cuernavaca, the Vatican Collection of Modern Art, the Print Consortium of Kansas City, Missouri, and the Popular Culture Library at Bowling Green State University in Ohio. He is currently an Assistant Professor of Art and the Gallery Coordinator at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa.

About his artwork, David writes, "I am trained as a printmaker and my work frequently reflects aesthetic concerns inherent in printmaking processes. Those include the concepts of image transfer, serial imagery, and multiple image manipulations that leave a visual record of the creative process." Pages from a Small World is an intimate, modestly scaled collage. The source materials for the piece are David's prints, cut into pieces and recombined to make a new artwork.
