“Time is Running Out”, the new show by legendary collage artist Winston Smith, opens – and closes – tonight in the artist’s new San Francisco gallery space, Grant’s Tomb.

The temporally themed exhibit will run for one night only, and will feature a selection of new and classic Winston Smith collages, 3-D clocks and some “just plain weird stuff”.

Armed with razor blade and a fiendish wit, Winston Smith’s modus operandi […] has been to kidnap “innocent” images from the pages of vintage magazines and then to diabolically glue them into compromising or politically revealing positions in his surreal collage landscapes. “Truly subversive artwork” wrote the SF Weekly in a review of Smith’s first book Act Like Nothing’s Wrong. “Perhaps the most vibrant collage maestro since Max Ernst,” wrote popular underground artist Frank Kozik.
