Allan Wexler: Breaking Ground

If you haven't been to Ronald Feldman Fine Arts (31 Mercer Street) to see Allan Wexler: Breaking Ground, you have until May 3 to do so. I stopped by on the way to work this morning and can't recommend it enough.

The works, which I'd posted about in March, are much larger than I anticipated.

Accompanied by a couple sculptures, the "hand-worked inkjet prints on panels" work really well in the two galleries.

Up close the assemblage of the images really comes across, with some faint grids apparent at first...

And then the make up of the rectangular panels from smaller rectangular prints on closer inspection...

And then the marked intersections seen up close reveal the images were in fact "hand-worked."
