Manipulating Media

The-Never-Never

 

Adbusters in The Never Never

I’m excited to share my newest work from my show Manipulating Media which opened on Thursday.  The show continues until May 4 at Gallery 22 and I encourage you to go and see it in person if you live in Whitehorse so you can better check out the detailed work.  Three pieces sold during the opening: Tentacles Off, Stand Out, and Under the Rug (which I’ve already fielded numerous requests for prints of and will be happy to accommodate).

The idea of the show was to manipulate the media instead of having it manipulate us.  The thirty pieces of work draw collage elements from thirty diverse magazines which were combined with acrylic, pastel, and lots of ink detailing.  I’ve highlighted the name of the magazine from which the work is derived in the titles so that you can get a sense of where it started as well as where it finished.  I wanted the show to represent a single slice of time in our collective history, so all of the magazines came from November 2012 which featured the tail end of the US presidential election, the re-election of Hugo Chavez, the 50th anniversary of the Bond franchise, and the arrest of Pussy Riot in Russia among other things.
