RISD: Random Individuals Seeking a Dealer, at Jane Kim/Thrust Projects features the work of four recent graduates, Jeff Barnett-Winsby, Tre Cassetta, Amanda Dandeneau, and Tom Prado from the Rhode Island School of Design’s photography department. A strictly digital show, 34 works by these emerging artists are printed on one 86-foot roll of inkjet photo paper which wraps around the gallery, cleverly illustrating how digital technology speaks to the times, providing the least expensive and most efficient way to hang a photography show. Whether snapshots, nude self-portraiture, exploration of reality and illusion, or night photography, each individual keeps it new and interesting.

Jeff Barnett-Winsby captures the beauty of man-made light after the sun goes down. Amanda Dandeneau explores the female bond in her portraits of her and her mother. Tre Cassetta¹s camera is an extension of himself and his life experiences. Tom Prado photographs the urban landscape in a critical but humorous way. All four photographers have distinct aesthetics and interests.

Together they share similar training in one of the world¹s most renowned art schools. The title of the show can be taken literally and sincerely as a plea to the public to consider the plight of young artists graduating from art school without a dealer.
