Exhibition: “Heads On Horizon: Sculpture and Images by Gary Justis” at Ramp-Arts Gallery

By | Exhibition, Gary Justis | No Comments

Manneken Press artist Gary Justis‘ exhibition “Heads On Horizon” opened last weekend at Ramp-Arts Gallery in Bloomington. The show includes sculpture, digital prints and videos.

The gallery’s main room contains two kinetic sculpture/installations, Pond and Heads On Horizon, quintessential Justis works, which use mechanics, projected light and sound to distill childhood memories into mesmerizing and poetic visual experiences. The room also includes several of the artist’s videos which loop on an installed monitor. The video’s soundtrack and the mechanical cacophony of the sculptures combine to create a hypnotic effect.

Three large digital prints, PhilsenRosetta, and Degge and Mate, hang in the front room of the gallery. These archival pigment prints – portrait-like still images of light projections – capture fleeting presences of otherworldly figures which possess “an unknowable consciousness, an inter-dimensional presence that momentarily disrupts the viewer’s casual expectations with a familiar incompleteness, something we naturally associate with human and/or metaphysical subjects”.

Gary Justis can be heard in conversation with Laura Kennedy of WGLT as they walk through the exhibition. In this illuminating interview, the artist shares insights, the stories behind the works and how they are made.

The 2016 Editions/Artist’s Books Fair has concluded.

After a whirlwind Print Week in New York City we are now back home and following up with the many interested collectors, curators, art consultants and gallerists who stopped in at our booth at the E/AB Fair. The fair included more than forty exhibitors from across the USA and from as far away as South Africa, showing contemporary prints, portfolios, artist’s books and unique paper works. Attendance at the fair was good, including over 1000 visitors at Thursday night’s VIP opening. We were pleased to be able to present all new work in our booth, created at Manneken Press over the past year by seven different artists.

Gary Justis at PH21 Gallery in Budapest

A digital photograph by Gary Justis is included in “RGB”, an international juried photography exhibition at PH21 Gallery in Budapest, Hungary.

Gary Justis often uses light as both subject and material in his kinetic sculptures, digital photographs and monoprints. His recent work involves the manipulation of various light sources and a variety of reflective surfaces and objects to create mysterious figures of light, which he then photographs.   Some images reference human or alien figures, animals, imaginary plants, natural phenomena, land or spacescapes, while others are completely abstract. These digital works are realized as archival pigment prints.

Images of Gary Justis’ digital works and his recently completed monoprint series at Manneken Press can be viewed here: http://mannekenpress.com/artists-3/gary-justis-page/

The exhibition in Budapest runs through September 20, 2016.
