In addition, do not miss the current group exhibition featuring Russell at the J. Paul Getty Museum on view now.

Cut! Paper Play in Contemporary Photography will feature the work of six contemporary photographers whose interaction with paper is an integral part of their practice. Some create paper models with images gleaned from current events, popular magazines, or the internet for the express purpose of photographing them. Others cut, layer, fold, and/or assemble representational photographs to introduce tactile or narrative elements. Cut! provides a contemporary counterpart to Paper Promises: Early American Photography, which outlines the ways in which photography on paper only belatedly came to be popularized in the United States in the mid- to late nineteenth century. Both exhibitions will be on view simultaneously the Center for in Photographs at the Getty Center from February 27 to May 27, 2018.

We are pleased that Christopher Russell’s Explosion #31, which was donated by the Mark & Hilarie Moore Family Collection in 2016 in memory of the Orlando Pulse Night Club Shooting Victims of 6/12/2016, is one of four photographs by the artist that will be featured in Cut! Paper Play in Contemporary Photography.

“I make sculptures based on paintings in what is traditionally considered a craft medium. In this translation, the sculptural representation of still life painting creates abstract forms. The results are beautifully made objects that simultaneously expose the crude structures of their creation.The pieces are both a simple exploration of residual forms derived from representation and a question regarding the merits of an Art object.” – Dirk Staschke

Mark Moore Fine Art is very pleased to announce the first online exhibition of the work of DIRK STASCHKE in an exclusive featured ARTSY feature this Spring 2018. Dirk Staschke is best known for his exploration of Dutch Vanitas still life themes in the medium of ceramics. His current body of work explores the space in between sculpture and painting.

AMY ELKINS featured in Aperture magazine’s “Prison Nation” February 07 – March 07, 2018

17_Elkins_BITDBITN copy

Image: Amy Elkins14/38 (Not the Man I Once Was), 2009-2016 / 20×24 (edition of 5), 30×40 (edition of 5) and 40×50 (edition of 5) – Portrait of a man 14 years into his death row sentence, where the ratio of years spent in prison to years alive determined the level of image loss.

Artist AMY ELKINS is currently featured in Aperture magazine’s “Prison Nation” issue and the related exhibition February 07 – March 07, 2018.

https://aperture.org/exhibition/prison-nation-2018/

Incarceration impacts all of us. “Americans, even those who have never been to a prison or had a relative in prison, need to realize that we are all implicated in a form of governance that uses prison as a solution to many social, economic, and political problems,” the Curator, Nicole Fleetwood, notes. Empathy and political awareness are essential to creating systemic change—and through Aperture magazine, and the accompanying exhibition and public programming, “Prison Nation” may provoke us to see parts of ourselves in the lives of those on the inside.

Additional Exhibited Artists: Lucas Foglia / Bruce Jackson / Emily Kinni / Jesse Krimes / Jack Lueders-Booth / Deborah Luster / Chandra McCormick and Keith Calhoun / Zora Murff / Nigel Poor / Joseph Rodriguez / Jamel Shabazz / Sable Elyse Smith / Stephen Tourlentes
