Driven Snow in The Museum of Americana, Issue 5 February 20th, 2014

issue-five-aThe Museum of Americana is an online literary review dedicated to fiction, poetry, nonfiction, photography, and artwork that revives or repurposes the old, the dying, the forgotten, or the almost entirely unknown aspects of Americana. It is published purely out of fascination with the big, weird, wildly contradictory collage that is our nation’s cultural history.

Remote at Sweetwater Center for the Arts, Sewickley, PA January 1st, 2014

Remote - Andy Mattern
With the technological developments of the 21st century, popular trends have boomed, leaving the art world with a much broader sense of what popular culture is in the contemporary moment. Tools that, in the past, have been used exclusively by the artist are now more readily available to everyone. The Internet, social media, up-and-coming apps, smart phones, and tablets are all channels that provide world access to popular culture and creativity. Contemporary artists who capture their source material directly from popular culture continue to explore exactly how “the now” becomes “the iconic.”

This exhibition is juried by Nicholas Chambers, The Milton Fine Curator of Art at the Andy Warhol Museum, and Robert Beckman, Director at Artists Image Resource.

On Display: January 18 - March 29, 2014
Reception: Saturday, January 18, 2014, 7:00 - 9:00 p.m.

Absent Vessel at Photo Center NW, Seattle, WA September 26th, 2013

Andy_Mattern-Absent_Vessel-5536b“This fall in the gallery alcove Andy Mattern’s recent work, Absent Vessel (2013) will be on display. Mattern uses the camera-less process of the photogram to represent a collection of crushed polystyrene cups. These former containers from a variety of fast food chains and gas stations were found in the street, flattened by cars into fragile apron-like shapes. Treated like paper negatives, each of these urban artifacts was individually pressed against a sheet of photographic paper in the darkroom and exposed to light, a reference to the origins of photography and the impulse to catalog unique phenomena. As the light gradually passes through each form, the graphics and textures from both sides are merged into a new uncanny surface.”
