EVIDENCE

.
It’s official. An exhibition of new work will open with brunch at FOLEY on Sunday September 9, 2012 from 12PM-2PM.  Most of my summer was devoted to paging through (and tearing pages from) the old science books, encyclopedias and primary readers that I’ve been collecting/hoarding since graduate school (1993-1996)–turning my tidy workspace into a total disaster! After a solid week of making cutouts, I spent another four arranging (pinning/gluing/taping), photographing, stitching-together and color–correcting the overlapping exposures of 32 new images (for an explanation of the process, scroll down to the middle OFFICIAL). Twelve of these will adorn the walls and mark the opening of FOLEY’s new location at 97 Allen Street, New York, NY 10002.

If you plan on attending the opening and would prefer not to see the images beforehand (printed 12″ x 15″ – nearly half the size of my previous work), then I suggest that you stop here. For everyone else,  I am pleased to present, BEAUTIFUL EVIDENCE:

A comment from artworksb146 reminded me that I failed to mention something – the edition size for each print is 10. All are borderless and mounted on black Sintra (3mm). The gallery handles all price inquiries. –Tom

  8. I am collecting art from young and upcoming artists since 2000 and I even supported some of them on their way by introducing them to my friends and my environement. I even participated at fairs like SCOPE and PINTA just to show the world how much I appreciate their works. Why did I do that? Because I just LOVED what they did. Your works have the same effect to me. You made my day and I wish you ALL THE BEST for your show!! Any price-information is much appreciated…
