Ian Berry (aka Denimu) is currently featured in the Shooting Gallery‘s group show Hard Time Mini Mall, curated by Red Truck Gallery. He recently sent us some photos from his studio in Sweden, which look like a cross between the defective garment section at a Levi’s factory, and Bruce Springsteen’s walk-in closet. It’s amazing to see what the work Ian makes from this abundance of material.

The artist creates two-dimensional collages from layering andĀ gluingĀ pieces of denim and he is deftly able to portray distance with vanishing points by carefully selecting gradations in color with the prolific, blue material. In a post on Ian’s work written today, Jane Kenoyer from Hi-Fructose remarks on how every work is truly an undertaking, “On closer inspection the characteristics of the denim material slowly emerge and the hours of labor are revealed.” via You can see a few of Berry’s works that are currently on display in the Shooting Gallery in these studio shots, such as Journey Home.

Hard Time Mini Mall runs through May 4.
