    For Your Mind’s Eye 

    Here they are –  fresh off the presses!  Linn Meyers‘ suite of prints that she made during her two week Print Center residency. Each of the three prints has two different photo polymer plates, resulting in a wonderful moire effect.  We just can’t stop staring at them.  Because of their incredible detail, it’s really difficult to represent the work on your computer monitor. But here’s one attempt.

    Above is a detail. Seriously, you should see them in person. They are available to purchase as a suite of three.  Call us at 408-283-8155 to set up an appointment to see them.

    Into the Vortex 

    I was so into this work by Julia Goodman at the CCA MFA exhibition.

    Each ring is made out of recycled paper – Goodman collects junk mail, old paper scraps, etc. to make her sculptural objects. Isn’t it amazing that the hand-made paper looks like granite?  Below is the front view, looking into the vortex.

    I’ve known Julia since she participated in the Distributed Exhibition in San Jose last year, a project organized by Sara Thacher and part of the This Show Needs You. For that project she was busy collecting junk mail – it’s great to see what she has been making with it.

    Separated at Birth? 

    Remember Linn Meyers from the Space Between exhibition last year? How can we forget the mind-boggling wall drawing she made? Well, as the recent Print Center Aritst-in-Residence (AIR) Linn and Print Center Director Fanny Retsek worked non-stop the last two weeks to make a suite of etchings. We promise to show you images soon, but believe me when I say they are stunning!

    In the process of working together for two weeks straight, they realized they may have been separated at birth, or at least are art kindred spirits.  For instance, they are both allergic to walnuts and pineapple, eat like rabbits, have short brown hair and love to make repetitive line art. We really can’t wait to show you the artwork.  In the meantime, here are some action shots.

    Where Are They Now? Travis Meinolf is Part of the Social Fabric 

    The ICA invited artist Travis Meinolf to weave using his portable loom on South First Street during the SubZero festival last June in conjunction with ZERO1. (Btw, check out the ZERO1 Superlight catalogue in our Art Lounge!). If you didn’t see Travis then, check this video made by Michael Goodier that captures Meinolf weaving in public. It is called Social Fabric. How much would you like to stumble on this during your daily walk through a park?

    Vodpod videos no longer available.
