About our Juror:
“Ruben Nieto, (born in Guantajuato, Mexico) is a UT Dallas doctoral candidate and artist in residence at Centraltrak. He has re-imagined his childhood love for comic books with a new engaging perspective translated through his works of art. He transforms the comic book into highly energetic and visceral paintings which re-contextualize the imagery. He spent hours researching the history of comic books both from a political and creative perspective, the history of text, Andy Warhol, and techniques of Master painters like Millet.” ~ Arts and Culture Magazine interview

Robert David Reedy
“The Critical Mass of 99 Monkeys”

Lago Vista Gallery, Richland College
June- Aug 25, 2010
Closing Reception: Wednesday, August 25th from 12-1 p.m.

IMG_2037-1kRobert David Reedy, a current student of Richland College Art Department, displays his 99 art works developed around the image of a monkey skull. Taking his cues from pop iconography, Warhol, contemporary advertising, Marshall McLuhan,  and Walter Benjamin’s text “The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction” Reedy displays a work that challenges and posits fascinitating cultural commentary.

Reedy’s use of a stencil to create the imagery causes a faux mechanical similarity, yet Reedy alters the colors providing a distinct uniqueness to each image. While the content may be disturbing it tends to become subjugated to the overall aesthetic of  stylized pattern and color when one views the entire piece. The idea that the grotesque and powerful may be relegated to pattern due to sheer quantity challenges notions of social responsibilty in the face of stimulus overload.

Reedy will also perform the latest incarnation of  “Pyramid Schemes” during the closing reception utilizing video projection, synthesizers, and vocals. The performance promises to be fast and intense as Reedy investigates issues of power within a social context.

Will nature provide the tools and knowledge to survive into the next century? Can science save us from ourselves? Contemporary art reflects the times. What do you have to say?
