The artist states, “The concept of my work revolves around globalization and the assimilation of all aspects of our society, more specifically how we as individuals identify within this assimilated society and the aspects of singularity it presents in our everyday lives. Lately my work has been dealing with consumerism and how the trends it produces lead to post-humanism outcomes. I’ve been illustrating these ideas in my artwork by showing different images of assemblages representing ideas of production, advertising, presentation, and consumption of both material products and ideals associated with consumer values. I’m also exploring various mechanisms that control these trends and dystopic outcome. These mechanisms are beyond human control and govern our everyday lives.”

Today we are pleased to share Melanie Kohler's print “Together/ Apart” from the 7th Biennial International Footprint Exhibition.  Selected by juror Jane Kinsman, circaeightythree is one the ninety artists whose prints are on display in the Grace Ross Shanley Gallery.  All the works in the exhibition are for sale and our gallery is now open and available for visitors by appointment.  Anyone wishing to see the show or inquire to purchase a print, please call or email CCP at (203) 899-7999 or info@contemprints.org to check availability.

Writes Melanie, "I enjoy experimenting with non-traditional letterpress printing materials, including craft foam from my son's art bin. Last year I explored cutting simple shapes and overprinting basic colors, which evolved into this series of prints that also introduces color gradients. The process of mixing colors on press and working with a temporary plate material is an exciting way to move beyond the perfection of some letterpress printing, more toward monoprinting.

 
The abstract nature of this print is a study in creating connections during a time when distance is necessary. Some connections are purposeful while others happen without intention, and even more go undetected. All of these connections have consequences and fill the space around us.

The spotlight is on Yuemei Zhang's print “Crossing III” selected by the juror Jane Kinsman, from the 7th Biennial International Footprint Exhibition. yuemeizhang is one the ninety artists whose prints are on the wall in the Grace Ross Shanley Gallery until November 22, 2020.  All the works in the exhibition are for sale and our gallery is now open and available for visitors by appointment.  Anyone wishing to see the show or inquire to purchase a print, please call or email CCP at (203) 899-7999 or info@contemprints.org to check availability.

Says Yuemei, "Crossing IIII" is the fourth etching in a series on immigration. The Forbidden City in Beijing is a place that represents the past Chinese immigrants left behind. A crane flies right above the rocks. The summer palace lies quietly in the distance. I utilize varied methods in making my art. I often use focus points such as gates and windows to show distance through perspective, inviting the viewer into a space of speculation, making every piece a journey through my thoughts.
