OPENING RECEPTION: Wed, Sep 7, 6-8 pm GALLERY TALK: Thu, Sep 15, 8pm Show Dates: Sep 3rd – Sep 15th
The show brings together a group of artists who research, source, and juxtapose images. While it is safe to say most artists working with an element of representation do “find and combine” in some form or another, the interest here is how varied the results can be, in this case, ranging from lenticular prints, to abstractions based on Chinese scrolls to Netherlandish Renaissance tattooed hipsters, to digital prints processed entirely through the computer.
The show reminds us that such visual hunting and gathering is an important part of the creative process for artists, particularly now as use of images from newspapers, the internet or art history fall under new copyright and intellectual propers laws that threaten their process.
