Beep Beep Gallery says
Beep Beep Gallery is proud to present "Archaeomancy" new work by Atlanta based artist Mike Germon. Mike's new body of work continues to explore the relationship between science and mythology, executed in his signature style of collage.

"Archaeomancy" introduces narratives focused on imagined realities where science and religion are intertwined and reciprocal. To this effect, Germon has created a series of works and objects that illustrate this theme in ways both philosophical and absurd, such as periodic table ouija boards that link spirits with chemistry.

Please join for the opening reception Saturday April 4th.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Mike Germon is a collage artist living and working in Atlanta, GA.
Time travel, alchemy and the Exquisite Corpse serve as thematic and stylistic underpinnings as Mike Germon's collage and installation work combine the visual elements of religious and scientific source materials. Both modern and vintage graphic design inform the minimalist compositions of his relatively small pieces. The frequent inclusion of found objects provides greater context for two-dimensional work, as well as compositional diversity, and a broader range in which to explore the potential of physical source material. Atlanta arts writer Jerry Cullum's reaction to a recent installation in a group show offers a concise description that is applicable to much of Germon's work: " [It] was the most reflective in juxtaposing potent shorthand for a bunch of incompatible belief systems, all of which have in common the effort to impose a grid of meaning on the mess of history."

Germon holds a BFA in Fine Art/Digital Media from The University of Georgia, founded the underground arts blog ThoughtMarker and served as the gallery manager for MINT Gallery.
