Graffiti: From Street to Studio
Wing & A Prayer Studio
Featuring work by: Corinne Adams

Exhibition: Wed, Oct 3, to Fri, Oct 5 2012

We are surrounded by graffiti. This contemporary art form which employs scribbling, scratching, spray painting and tagging has gone far beyond illicit protest to advertise, tell stories and inspire in every corner of our lives.

These graffiti-inspired mixed media images give me an opportunity to focus on the composition of graffiti as opposed to its message. Instead of paint and markers, I use photography, hand transfers, collage and computer paintbrushes. I add/subtract line and shape -- and push/pull color and texture -- in spontaneous experimentation.

The computer platform offers more freedom than an urban wall as I initiate a call-and-response process that feels intuitive and musical. It is photography -- painting -- printmaking -- graphic design -- and yet none of the above. It is a search for harmony in cacophony with potential for little glories all along the way.

Closing Reception: Fri, Oct 5, 5pm - 8pm
