ON VIEW: JUNE 20 - JULY 26, 2014
OPENING RECEPTION: JUNE 20, 6:00 - 9:00 PM
Art League Houston (ALH) is excited to presentJump Cut, an exhibition of new work by Houston-based artist Peter Lucas. The exhibit features a series of collages, altered media objects, and video works that playfully explores the nature of montage through simple, bold slicing and splicing of imagery.The opening reception is Friday June 20, 6 - 9 PM with an artist talk at 6:30 PM.
With a sensibility informed as much by film and music as by traditional visual arts, Lucas’ work is largely concerned with creating tensions and transitions between elements. This exhibition includes new collages, media objects, and a multiple-screen video installation made with imagery from various printed media (books, magazines, packaging, etc.).
Jump Cut playfully and aggressively reframes and combines elements of photographs, illustrations, typography, and sound. The show’s title references a particular kind of discontinuous splice found in film editing, and more generally calls attention to the assertive act of cutting and the resulting “sparks” in the hard transitions of the work.
