Andy Mister: Vanishing Point
March 23rd - April 29th 2017
This exhibition of recent work by Andy Mister (b. 1979) continues his exploration of the boundary between mechanical and manual reproduction. Working with images appropriated from vintage photographs and deftly mimicking the Xerox-aesthetic of punk zines and album covers, Mister’s drawings question how meaning is created or lost through the act of “copying.” In Vanishing Point, the artist turns his attention away from the overtly political themes of his previous work and toward nature-based photography. Translating the grandeur and natural beauty of a landscape through a tough, dirty, printed aesthetic gives the works in this exhibition an incisive edge, like a conservationist’s message delivered with punk-rock urgency.
