Joseph Cornell

Joseph Cornell, a self taught artist that the visionary art museums have not yet exploited (thankfully).  Joseph spent most of his life in the same small town, caring for his ailing family members.  During this time he began making art in the forms of videography and these examples of sculptural collages.  There's something haunting and ironic in his chosen art to be contained within small boxes and frames, given the background of his life.  I've seen his works in person and they're wonderfully brilliant, precise and meticulous.
