May 1- August 12th

Lorna Ruth Galloway: Deadpan Realities

Project Room

Artist: Lorna Galloway

Curated by Meg Kaplan-Noach

Opening Reception: Friday, May 13th 7:00pm

Deadpan Realities is an ingenious mashup of today’s video-gaming culture, historical Pop Art, and creative contemporary art-making. Its foundation is the extremely popular video game Grand Theft Auto V, a favorite of the artist.  Lorna’s halftone prints survey homage and appropriation, reality and commodity.

The iconic scenery in the video calls to mind Pop Artist Ed Ruscha’s iconic photographs of fueling stations. Galloway adds her own level of appropriation, and “reclaims” what she terms “the supposedly banal.” She commences with humble cellphone-camera snapshots– used to capture the GTA-5 Ruscha-esque videogame locales– and ends up with exceptional explorations of mediation, materials, and image making.
