IOWA ARTISTS 2013: Midwest Pressed
Tim Dooley and Aaron Wilson
August 2 — October 13, 2013
Blank One Gallery
Midwest Pressed is a collaborative print project between two Iowa artists and art educators.
Working mainly with screen prints, Dooley and Wilson focus on themed bodies of work that
highlight both the unique and serial nature of printmaking. The works involve intense layering
of color and imagery, often focusing on the faces of pop culture figures and heroes of Modernism
to create their own “monsters” or “zombies.” Displayed from floor to ceiling in a grid-like format,
the viewer experiences the full effect of a large series of related works, while also seeing the detail
and variation of individual prints.
This exhibition is organized by Laura Burkhalter, associate curator.
