A one-page book by mixed media work by Osamu Kanamura. The artist collages color digital prints, images of advertisements, and words and phrases cut out from newspapers that are somewhat suggestive. In addition to adding three-dimensionality with kraft tape, the work is coated haphazardly with transparent vinyl tape. The title “Chop Shop” is a cryptic term for the business of dismantling and selling stolen vehicles.
