Altered States - Bridging the Gap Between Tradition and Innovation
at Arc Gallery, San Francisco from March 27 - April 26, 2014
Altered States investigates the intersections between traditional and emerging technologies. It celebrates artists who embrace diverse working methodologies and challenge the concept of the conventional multiple.
There has been as evolution in printmaking. No longer are printmakers expected to adhere strictly to traditional boundaries. More and more printmakers are adapting their practice to create prints that are cross-disciplinary in nature, employing collage, cut paper, mixed media and 3D to create one of a kind artworks. The matrix is no longer necessarily the final point before an edition is printed, but is more often considered a starting point for something entirely different
This exhibition aims to bridge the gap between tradition and innovation, focusing on artists whose work challenges the concept of two- dimensional multiples in printmaking.
