Mark Price- ROI, Real-time Or Instead
February 6th- 28th
New and recent silkscreen printed collage works from artist Mark Price. A collection of Price’s collage works from 2014 - 2018. Engaged with the silkscreen printing collage processes over the past ten years Price utilizes a self produced archive of printed imagery including optical patterns, found graphics, and gradient color fields that collage into rich and frenetic two dimensional compositions. The works explore where our psychological and information architecture become one. The resulting compositions operate as high-resolution experiences that attempt to map out a mediation of internalized and externalized information flows. The compositions address the possibility of a static image of today that encompasses our multi-modal experience with an ever expanding built environment.
Recently relocating back to the Philadelphia area from Portland, Maine this will be Price’s first exhibition in the area since showing his collage works in 2016 at Gallery 543 located at The Navy Yard in Philadelphia. Mark Price is a graphic artist who uses the silkscreen printing process to produce 2-D and 3-D visual works. Working with gallery director Christina Ray he has mounted three New York solo exhibitions including ‘The New Real Fantasy Now’ 2009, ’Designer Endgame Strategies’ 2010, and ‘Hyper 20XX’ 2012. Additionally his work has been featured in group exhibitions at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco and the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia. In 2009 his work was selected by curator Aaron Betsky for inclusion in the internationally recognized Confines exhibition at the Institut Valencia d’Art Modern.
