Jonathan Zawada — Kindred Spirits
Past: February 7 → 25, 2012
Exhibition “Kindred Spirits”, January 30 — February 25
Kindred Spirits is a collection of print works which explore the value of the image in a disorienting world where visual culture is defined by an assortment of images out of context, a subject he also explores on his blog Fashematics. The show comprises pieces from an ongoing body of work that explores the simple manipulation of found imagery, utilising techniques from collage to Photoshop to custom coded image distortion algorithms.The work is essentially image-play, a kind of visual theatre sport where everything is liberated from style, concept and context and simply is.
