For Construction + Reconstruction, I selected and printed a large number of images from my various collections especially LANDSHIFT. They were sized an printed at a scale to make them readily accessible and engaging to the viewer from many viewpoints. The montage compositions were printed onto large mylar banners.
Hanging from a network of stretched wires above, in the JacFlats Gallery lofts, the images appeared larger than life. These images were visible from front and back because the substrate material was translucent and also because the banners were deployed throughout the gallery in overlapping vertical planes, not up against walls. This spatial arrangement, inspired by the art of the DeStijl movement and specifically by the architectural layout of Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona Pavilion, invited the viewer to explore, meander and be surprised while discovering contrasting images through peek a boo views.
Now, those images on display in the summer show, Construction + Reconstruction will be viewable here on my website under various other titles. Also you will be able to see a few snapshot photos of the opening day before the crowds of people attended during the two week long showing.
