There are plenty of practitioners who’ve carved a
well-deserved niche out with the medium — like Javier Pinon,
whose iconic cowboys-and-furniture works give the
cut-and-paste aesthetic new life.) ...Brian Douglas,
a.k.a. Elbow-Toe, gives us 2010’s "Bears" — a cut paper
on birch panel work that pictures a man helping a woman
out of her bear costume. The craftsmanship is impeccable,
and the weirdo narrative is intriguing and anything but obvious.

On the walls, the work of Brian Adam Douglas (also known as
“Elbow-Toe”) thrills. His gorgeous collages are so papery and
textural, colourful and luminous that they look like vibrant,
painterly Old Masters.
