REACTS 1-11 and FACETS 1-8 (2013)
new digital drawings by Jonathan Morse
Jonathan Morse is a Santa Fe photographer and experimental printmaker whose work blurs the lines between media. REACTS and FACETS are his most recent series, drawings which react to the current art environment and to themselves. Printed on metallic paper and mounted like photographs, they suggest that the viewer think of digital process as an original medium through which the artist can make marks never seen before, while sharing and expanding the important traditions of work on paper which have gone before. As Christopher Benson, owner of the Fisher Press has written about prior work: "This is computer art with a human hand embedded in its heart. Precisely by abandoning all attempts to make facsimiles of handmade things, [Morse] has found a way to make a technological thing that has had human life breathed into it. These are not photographs, or copies of something else – they are original works of art made wholly by technology, yet guided by a thoughtful and engaged human intellect." Please join the artist for the first showing of these two new print series.
Exhibit continues through July 26 Saturdays 1-5 and by appointment
