Drying: Tsunami Youtube Prints

 

Artists Talk on April 12, 2012 at 6pm.

This exhibit is composed of mixed-media paintings made in reaction to the consumer-grade videos taken during the tsunami that hit Japan in 2011. Through a methodical layering of hundreds of mono-prints and acrylic inks, Woodring’s new pieces reintroduce stillness back into ephemeral and manic sequences of terrifying images and the physical reality, which has been irrevocably altered.

Woodring was awarded a residency in the Brew House Distillery Program in 2011 and “Best Emerging Artist of the Year” from the Three Rivers Arts Festival in 2011. He holds a BFA from Carnegie Mellon University.
