Texas lawyer Philip Durst creates collages, drawn to the pattern and repetition that are also the hallmarks of quilting. Just as quilts were traditionally made with scraps and left-over fabrics, Durst works with cast-off paint chips, books, candy boxes, and other packaging . (Above: Mothra, We Hardly Knew Ye 33×40.75” comic books, packaging)
-Double, Double, This, This (II), Starbucks coffee cups, packaging, law book pages
–Revolt of the Silesian Weavers 26 x 22”, paper, paint
When not creating art, Durst practices employment and civil rights law, and teaches as an adjunct law professor at University of Texas law school.
