Northside’s NVISION is currently showing Tin Foil, a quirky series of collages by Paul F. Tribble, incorporating, yes, tin foil. The tin foil sets off found images (found in second-hand coffee table books) in interesting juxtapositions that reward attention. Tribble’s day job, restoring stained-glass windows, takes him around the country and limits his on-the-road artwork to a size — 30 inches tall by 20 inches wide — that can be produced in hotel rooms.
These intriguing productions are not trammeled by their restrictions; instead, ideas abound. In “Chromosome,” life is represented in a multitude of forms — plant, avian and more — along with a wreck of a stone tower that carries its own implications. Tin Foil is on view through March 24. 4575-7 Hamilton Ave., Northside. 513-542-4577, nvisionshop.com.
