At the moment on check out at Talon Gallery in Portland, Oregon is artist Andrew Rice’s solo exhibition, “A Foreseeable future We Have been Promised. A Long term That By no means Arrived.”

Andrew says of the perform, “the pieces in this system of work are collages comprised entirely of old comedian e book imagery. Most of the publications had been from my childhood and similarly the items in this overall body of operate have a definite feeling of nostalgia. I am drawn into the youthful optimism the comedian ebook imagery retains. This notion of the long run we have been promised. A upcoming that hardly ever came.I relate the collage items to my operate as a printmaker in a good deal of ways. By way of the layering, the texture developing and the meticulous reducing and positioning, the act of making feels a ton like producing a print. In its possess way, it is a variety of print “making.” I am generating a new piece of primary function out of an edition, working backwards from what my printmaker self is properly trained and common with.It is not as critical to me at the minute to make my individual, distinctive marks, but rather use a visu- al catalog that currently exists to create a new piece. An creator, or poet rarely creates a new term, but can however explain to an totally unique tale with the phrases out there in their language. I am seeking at collage in a related way. Utilizing the photographs that are by now at my disposal to inform a new, but acquainted tale.”
