This spectacular framed collage on panel titled “Fly Over” is made from found objects, mostly wood, and was created by New Hampshire artist, Jason Reimers (1974-). Jason Reimers is drawn to salvaged wood and found objects with character and history – whether worn by use, created by craftsmanship or weathered by the elements. He collects discarded materials from old homes (a mill building in Peterborough, his own 1700s home in Goffstown, an antique Hopkinton house), the ruins of resort life on Uncanoonuc Mountain, and the beaches of Puerto Rico, Sicily, Newfoundland and Marblehead, Mass. Reimers, who has a degree from Vermont Law School, describes himself as a scavenger and a finder. “When I walk, I look down because that's where things can be found. Copper screws sometimes fall off of slate roofs,” said Reimers. “I have long accumulated unique objects and bits from my travels: rocks and metal mining remnants from the Mojave Desert, volcanic ash from last year’s eruption in Iceland, ceramic pipes and plates, cobblestones and bottles from my former life as a professional archaeologist in San Francisco, and date nails from abandoned New Hampshire railways.” Reimers works have been exhibited at the Southern Vermont Art Center, Manchester, VT, Shorty’s in Bedford, NH, and are also in private collections throughout New England and beyond.
