This post is coming from the current Washington Printmakers Gallery intern, Charlotte Marriott. I’ve been working here just over a month and wanted to write about one of my favorite pieces in the current collection – ‘Fragments’ by Eric COGu Robinson.
Robinson has deconstructed the concept of a print by cutting various works into small squares. Calling this process “Aggregate Art,”, Robinson has combined these print fragments into a collection reminiscing a quilt. The juxtaposition of text, image and pattern abstracts has made the work an installation, taking over three walls of the Press Room.
Those purchasing a strip of prints are invited to pick and choose from the collection, tailoring it to their own tastes. My favorite works include prints of butterfly wings, shells and Mondrian styled squares.
The exhibition runs until July 29th 2012.
