Silkscreen


Johnson will open a solo exhibition at Gay Fay Kelly at Prizer on Sept 6, 2014, at 7 pm.  On display will be a series of multilayered, exquisitely printed, highly symbolic and personal silkscreens which he produces as one-ups--monoprints with with the most unreflective blacks I have ever seen in printmaking except for the deepest mezzotints.

Physical presence

Given the plethora of digital images, what is it that moves people to possess a real object? Why is a drawing preferable to an indistinguishable scan? I understand why the existence of one would make it monetarily more valuable, but why would it be emotionally more valuable?  Is the object so tied to its price that that is the motivation for liking it?

I know, I know: Yes and no.

Ashe Laughlin: Payback



Laughlin does something very hard: He makes political art with a timeless quality. This piece is based on a news shot of riots in Tahrir Square. Using the colors of the Egyptian flag, Laughlin has made art with the same visceral appeal as Munch's Scream.

Will 3-d printing make it possible for more small collectors to buy sculpture? Or is it that sculpture is more difficult to display and people buy stuff that goes on the wall?

Dallas video artist Greta Poulsen’s work in “Pinched”  turns the process of animation on its head.  Instead of chaining many slightly different still images to create the illusion of motion, Poulsen starts with video footage and programs only the parts that move into individual frames.  The result is an entirely new take on the original sampled material—sort of “Nude Descending a Staircase” meets Jacques Derrida.
