Javier Pinon uses found images cut from books and magazines to create narrative collages. His elaborate, surprisingly cohesive collages retain the charm and allure of the faded Americana of which they are comprised, while at the same time imbuing it with new meaning and propelling its characters into the larger framework of both ancient and modern-day mythologies.
