The Annex @ Spudnik Press
Opening Reception & Artist Talk:
Friday, February 3, 2017
Spudnik Press Cooperative presents new work by Chicago-based artist Viraj Mithani. The exhibition, titled “Paper to Plastic” explores time and contemporary printmaking. It investigates the relationship between the hierarchy of print, painting and drawing by challenging the established norms of the mediums. By combining painting techniques with both traditional printing processes and digital prints, Paper to Plastic questions the historical segregation between the mediums. It further explores the fading practice of traditional printmaking processes and sustainable way of living with the oversaturation of digital technology. Responding to these phenomena, the constructed forms and images capture the permanence of constant change, and evoke feelings of inevitable destruction.
