IOWA ARTISTS 2013: Midwest Pressed—Worn Out
Recent Works by Tim Dooley and Aaron Wilson

August 2 — October 13, 2013
Blank One Gallery


Midwest Pressed: Worn Out - Recent Works by Tim Dooley and Aaron Wilson, 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, or "making each print an individual and successful impression born from the language of the multiple." The works involve intense layering of color and imagery, often focusing on clichés from pop culture. Zombies, unicorns, Bigfoot, kittens, money, and Modernism all make appearances. Displayed from floor to ceiling in grid-like and clustered formats and printed on both paper and t-shirts, the exhibition will present a visual overload of pieces from several series of related works.
     This exhibition is organized by Laura Burkhalter, associate curator.

 

 

Iowa Artists 2013 is supported by the Elizabeth Firestone Graham Foundation, the Peter H. and E. Lucille Gaass Kuyper Foundation, and KPMG LLC.
