Please note we are closed Saturday, May 26. Have an enjoyable and safe holiday weekend! *** All of the projects that I work on start by walking with a camera, at first as a means of journaling….When sorting through the images later, these landscapes change shape and take on new meaning, as I forget what existed outside the frame. These instances of daydreaming and the fog of memory are mirrored by my use of mixed media and the flaws intrinsic to the photographic medium - light leaks, lens flares and multiple exposures. Screenprinting over a photograph distorts the realities of the landscape, but it also meshes with the initial observation to create something new. These combined mediums and disparate pairings point to the fallacy of photographic documentation and hint at the subjective ways that we perceive and record the actual world. - Jacob Koestler *** Image: Jacob Koestler, Russian Satellite, from the series “The Natural Bridge”, 2013, Archival pigment print *** #theprintcenter #92ndANNUAL #phlarts#philly#visitphilly#philly#phillyart#phillyartist#philadelphia#contemporaryarts @danielwcoburn @american_spirit @julieanne321
