K.G. Ricci

big lie

K.G. Ricci, a self-taught New York City artist, made a collage on a file cabinet in 2015. The creative possibilities of the medium immediately inspired him. Fifty cut and paste panels followed, visual improvisations on 20” x 40” or 2’ X 4’ hardboard. Next, Ricci completed another series on 8” X 24” hardboard with implied literary reflections or narrative lines. He categorized hundreds of his panels in line with the evident themes of “Femma Dilemma”, “Hotel Kafka” and “3:43 A.M.”

Recently, Ricci sustained his implied narrative focus in “Numbered-Not Named”, a series of original pieces, 6” x 9” on black stock.  He followed the idea further with two projects: “Random Thoughts in the Waiting Room” and “Wait…what?” ~ a pair of visual flash fiction series of books with a single word or a fragment of text in each collage 7×10 composition. His current series “Incongruities” explores the narrative on a larger scale (18×24, 11×14) and with extended text.

K.G. Ricci has exhibited in 27 galleries including solo shows and many more online galleries. His collages have been published in poetry and literary magazines nationally and internationally online and in print.
