Artists Nick Cassway, Mark Khaisman, and Steven Earl Weber uniquely approach portraiture and social commentary through the manipulation of packaging tape, computer cut stencils, and printed glass.
Referencing film noir, Khaisman will be exhibiting his signature lightboxes as well as site specific tape works directly on windows in the gallery. Cassway will be exhibiting a new series based on a civil war drama created with his analog-to-digital-to-analog process that incorporates drawings edited together in Photoshop and output to computer cut stencils with house paint and metal leaf. Influenced by early photographic processes and his immediate surroundings,
Steven Earl Weber's new work will be seen as shadows reflected on surfaces from mirrors and panes of glass to illicit empathy and identification with his subjects.
All three artists look to the past for inspiration and embrace new
technologies in production to create compelling and surprising work that is both timely and timeless.
This exhibition is presented in partnership with Pentimenti Gallery and in conjunction with DesignPhiladelphia.
