Jason Trucco: Framed
23 May – 22 June 2013
Reception: Saturday 25 May, 4-8pm
We at Robert Kananaj Gallery are honored to present solo exhibition Framed by Jason Trucco.
"It is the framework which changes with each new technology and not just the picture within the frame."
This exhibition features new works that address the idea of the
frame, by re-purposing and re-creating classic moments of cinema or
constructing film like scenarios. They are characterized by Trucco's
ongoing endeavor to describe the shadowy world of video through the
lens of his classically stark, noir aesthetic. Like many of the
classic film directors he references, from Stroheim to Hitchcock to
Kubrick, Trucco pares his images down with a severe discipline that
allows their inchoate and dangerous underpinnings to surface in new
and alarming ways.
Jason Trucco is an artist and director whose highly experimental work
explores many of the images, ideas and experiences we collectively
share as consumers of mass media. For Trucco, these images are a point
of departure from which to explore the deeper resonances, distortions
and fragmentation that occur as they are broadcast and reiterated
throughout our culture. He explores variations on these themes in a
singularly disarming, lucid and witty style, complimented by the use
of inventive new technology.
