New Silkscreens and the Movie “Blind”
Petzel Gallery NYC
John is a master of assemblage with movie stills from the 50’s and 60’s. He’s been at it for 30 years and the creative output is amazing. These new silkscreens are a revisit to work created in the late 70’s. Powerful and hypnotic film nior silhouettes captivate the mind. The movie blind is shot from existing film stills, each different and run at a mesmerizing pace of 24 per second. My ears started ringing and definitely felt uneasy watching the onslaught of old movie images into my brain. Exhausting. Check it out.
