Jeff Dahlgren has been an active member of the creative community in Austin for 11 years. His visual art collages oil/varnish mediums with digital media. You can find him Monday nights at Volstead offering Free Poems on Demand – a project dedicated to the value of shared creative experience. He often collaborates with experimental musicians and sound artists. The works presented at NMASS this year are about natural decay and blending with its process. Digitally collaging the paintings means to contrast with an art/life preference for physical objects.
