Collection and Analysis 2, Mounted Pigment Print, 20.5"x20.5", 2009

I have unearthed myself from my holiday hibernation to bring you a smattering of shots from my latest curatorial endeavor. “Plastic Makes Perfect” features the work of San Francisco-based photographic artist Aron Cohen.

Cohen composes his subject matter in such a way as to create a sense of abstraction that one would expect from a painting. Executed through the photographic process, Cohen stages his materials and carefully composes each piece.

Five Series of Repititions, Xu Bing, Ink on paper, 1987

I love printmaking. I love the selection of papers, I love the processes, and I love how versatile a craft it is. An artist can silkscreen an edition of 200 to make some affordable works or he can execute a more painstaking process – woodblock, lithography – for one magnanimous creation. Chinese artist Xu Bing has (more…)
