Art of bits & pieces – Joel Carreiro opens a window onto the strangely familiar in ‘Seeing Things’

Joel Carreiro explained that his “paintings” are in fact collages; each is composed of hundreds and sometimes thousands of tiny squares that are blocks of pure color or snippets from pre-existing images of noted paintings, decorative porcelain figurines or illuminated manuscripts from throughout art history… The show opens Thursday and runs through Dec. 5 at Fairfield University’s Thomas J. Walsh Gallery.
