Bleakly titled “America Falling,” this collection of collages at the Hive collective in Middlesex represents a year’s worth of “post-election anxiety syndrome,” the artist says. A glossy, grinning magazine family exercises their right to bear arms; a Native American sits atop his horse in front of an anonymous cityscape that boasts a Wigwam Motel. Geary taps into collage’s long history of appropriating accessible materials to disorient, challenge and express anger. Juxtaposition — hopefully therapeutic — is the name of the game here, but Geary sees continuity in his narratives. He describes his work as “telling stories of the future using cut-outs of the past.”
