Opens Tonight, Feb 9, 6-8p:
Charles Bank Gallery, 196 Bowery, NYC (at Spring St)
Using discarded photos from junk stores, estate sales, and old magazines, Pruter enlarges found images and then slices and reassembles the fragments to create new imagery that blurs the line between what is real and what is imagined. For this new body of work, Pruter introduces his recent exploration of multimedia. Drawing on the walls with fractured reflections, the projector and mirror installation continues with the same visual language used in his works on paper. The multimedia installation contains found 35mm slides that are projected onto curved mirror tiles, fragmenting the images into myriad pieces and creating complex compositions out of intimate travel photographs and family portraits. - thru Mar 14
EVERYONE GO SEE THIS AND SUPPORT GARRETT BECAUSE HIS WORK IS FANTASTIC.
