Biographical NoteReturn to Top

Collage artist Rex Amos was born on August 13, 1935 in Wallace, Idaho to Frenche Harland "Bud" Amos and Jean (Johnstone) Amos. Amos was raised in Burke, Idaho, moving with his parents and brother, Clinton, to Portland, Oregon around the age of seven. Amos graduated from Washington High School in 1953 and was drafted into the U.S. Army shortly thereafter. Having grown up near Mt. Hood, Amos's first choice would have been to be on the Army ski patrol, but instead he served as a machine gunner in the infantry from 1954 to 1956 because of his excellent marksmanship. Upon Amos's return from the Army, his father made two attempts on Amos's life. These assaults by his father continued a pattern of abuse, which had been prevalent throughout Amos's childhood. To break the cycle of violence that had been visited upon the family, Amos moved his mother to a flat in Southeast Portland. It was there he met his future wife, Diane Smith.

Around 1960 Amos, Diane, and his mother Jean moved to The Village, a neighborhood in Southwest Portland full of musicians, writers, and artists. There Amos's creativity blossomed. A jazz drummer at this time, he broke the world record for marathon drumming, playing for 82 hours. When the musicians union revoked his union card for playing this unsanctioned job, Amos moved to Big Sur, California, with friend Ron Marcus. He and Marcus worked at the Big Sur Inn and lived in a shack under a bridge. It was there Amos found his passion for creating art. Having little money for supplies, Amos began creating assemblages from materials he found in the area. At the time, Amos considered his work more an expression of political and social critique than an aesthetic creation.

Prior to this, Amos had begun studying at Portland State University (PSU) majoring in philosophy and literature and was awarded his B.S. in 1969. In the midst of his study, he befriended PSU philosophy professor Dr. Graham P. Conroy. While a student, Amos conceived and named the philosophy of Preliminism in the early 1960s. He then gave Preliminism to Conroy because Conroy deemed the giving of philosophy impossible.

After moving to a large house behind a dry cleaners on S.W. 11th and Montgomery near Portland State, Amos was able to obtain a dump license which made it possible for him to collect materials for assemblages. On a trip to New York City with friend Greg Stone in 1961, Amos visited the Museum of Modern Art and saw "The Art of Assemblage" exhibit where he was amazed to discover that he had been creating works similar to those on display.

When the city stopped issuing dump licenses, Amos turned to paper as a medium of expression. He gained much of his artistic training and inspiration through practice and by studying other artists. Meeting the painter Matt Glavin, who was teaching at UC Berkeley, transformed Amos's vision. Glavin introduced him to the process of chine collé and made it possible for him to use the facilities at Magnolia Editions. Amos has continued to work in assemblage as well as in various forms of collage.

A signature of Amos's collages are the images he uses, which are meticulously cut from published materials using scissors intended for eye surgery - a process that has earned him the moniker "The Cutter." Amos then carefully selects from thousands of these images to create detailed collages infused with literary, historical, religious, and philosophical allusions. Amos's collages have been featured in galleries and museums such as the Portland Art Museum, Magnolia Editions, the Corvallis Art Center, the 12x16 Gallery, and the Hallie Ford Museum of Art. Many of these are in the style of chine collé, which is a combination of collage and print-making techniques.

After more than 50 years in Portland, Amos and Diane, a retired secondary school English teacher, now live in Cannon Beach, Oregon.

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

The Rex Amos papers are a collection of artwork, journals and diaries, biographical material, correspondence, photographs, and writings compiled by Amos. The collection also contains an oral history interview conducted with Amos in 2014. A wealth of information about Amos's life can be found in his correspondence and writings gathered largely from the mid-1950s to the 2010s. He documents his challenging childhood, his feelings about contemporary events, and the trials of friends and family's diseases, deaths, and suicides. Amos's oral history provides context to his papers and to his artwork. His correspondence reveals information about his own life as well as of the lives of those with whom he is writing, giving a unique look at life in Oregon and California through the second half of the twentieth century. There is video, newspaper, and Amos's written documentation of his care for his mother, Jean, while she had Alzheimer's disease. The Rex Amos papers represent Amos's lifetime as an artist: as an extra in Paint Your Wagon; as a jazz drummer in Portland; as an assemblage artist of materials near his home in Big Sur, California; as a collage artist creating 'gutterscapes' from scraps of used paper; to a collage artist creating chine collé for art galleries and museums in Oregon and California.

These papers also represent Amos's life as a philosopher. Amos conceived and named the philosophy of Preliminism, the theory and practice of practice. Preliminism is represented throughout Amos's papers, mentioned in correspondence, in his writing and referenced in news articles related to his work. His papers also reflect his life as a fly fisherman, clammer, and overall outdoorsman.

Along with Amos's own materials are those that he has gathered about friends and other Pacific Northwest artists. These include artwork, books, photographs, video, and writings of Amos's family and many area artists. Amos's wife, Diane, assisted in the organization and appraisal of the materials, adding context to much of the materials and many of the people featured in the papers. The Hallie Ford Museum of Art at Willamette University has a collection of Amos's artwork.

The Rex Amos papers are still undergoing processing and materials are being integrated and added to the collection with the finding aid updated periodically. Please contact the repository for more information or with questions.

Arrangement

This collection is arranged into nine series: I. Art; II. Books; III. Correspondence; IV. Email; V. Family and Friends; VI. Oral History; VII. Philosophy; VIII. Writing; and IX. Hats. Series III and V are further arranged into subseries to reflect the correspondent or subject of the material.

Materials physically retain original order. Order has been altered within this finding aid in order to increase findability of the materials. You will find materials within the physical collection ordered in their original way. Given the intertwining nature of these papers, there is some overlap between series and subseries. For example, while the majority of the documentation on Preliminism is found in Series VII, discussion of Preliminism can also be found throughout Rex's writing and correspondence with Graham Conroy.

available in archives digital storage via .mp3 audio file. one hour, forty-five minutes.

Amos participated in an Oral History interview conducted by Roger Hull, Professor Emeritus of Art History and Senior Faculty Curator, Hallie Ford Museum of Art at Willamette University. In the interview, Amos discusses his childhood in northern Idaho and the trials of living with an abusive father. He also talks of his time at Portland State University; his philosophy, Preliminism; and his artwork. Context is given to various parts of his collection including The Village, where he lived with Diane and his mother, Jean; the large house on Savier street in Portland; taking care of his mother who was afflicted with Alzheimer's disease; and the compilation, or lack thereof, of his archive. Also in attendance for this interview were Diane Amos, Bonnie Hull, and University Archivist, Mary McRobinson. Amos supplemented his oral history interview with several written addenda via email.

69
Knox fur hat (tan) with brim
"I can't remember what it is except for its soft finish. I wore it to piano recitals and concerts by the Oregon Symphony." -Rex Amos
71
Panama hat with black band
"Charlie Chan style with sharp ridge along the crown. I wore it to outdoor events during the summer." -Rex Amos
70
Washington State Parks Stetson
"This was given to me by Sam and Connie Diack when we were with Bud Clark visiting them at their place on the Deschutes River. They had it for a long time but it didn't' fit anyone until I came along. For a man who many say has a big head, I wear a small hat. The Diacks called this the "Ranger Rex" hat." -Rex Amos
68
Salvation Army cap
"I believe there is a woman's name sewn inside (Pearl L. VanHoorn). I wore this cap to parties and in parades. But it was most often a nice display atop one of our bookshelves." -Rex Amos
73
Will Work for Jesus baseball cap
63
Black Homburg
"I wore it to Preliminist events. Have a photo standing outside the White Bird Gallery in Cannon Beach dressed all in black with a red lion tie to go with a red and black Preliminist button. I am with Diane, mother, brother and nephew. That night I gave away about 50 albums of a disco version of Tuxedo Junction. I got them from a record store in Berkeley that had gone out of business. The company had put them in the garbage." -Rex Amos
64
Borsalino
"I rarely wore it because it is a finely tuned hat and of rare vintage. Check inside at the sweatband for good graphics." -Rex Amos
65
German Military Helmet
66
Sailor's cap
"I think 'Portland' is hand-printed inside the band. You can tell it is old because of the rattan-like lining. I called it my Latvian Navy cap after pinning a piece of junk jewelry to the front. People believed me. Wore it to many parties." -Rex Amos. In the inside band has "W. G. Harrington" and "Portland Oregon" hand-printed.
