GREG GOSSEL "HEAD OVER HEELS" @ White Walls, SFJuxtapoz // Thursday, 27 Jun 2013
Last days to see Greg Gossel's newest exhibition at White Walls in San Francisco: Head Over Heels, the latest solo show by MN-based artist Greg Gossel, featuring 12 new large scale works on canvas... each piece is built up with collage, and then layered with hundreds of hand-pulled screen prints directly onto the canvas: a new direction for Gossel’s previous approach to actually tearing posters & billboards off the street as he has done in the past. For the first time, Gossel has worked directly with a pair of photographers to acquire a variety of fashion-based images that are incorporated throughout the work. The images have been blown-up and hand screen printed in fragmented and weathered black and white to mimic life-sized billboards found on the street. By translating type and textures into a huge series of silkscreen prints which are then layered and repeated throughout the body of work, Gossel has created more dynamic and vibrant work than ever before.
The show closes this Saturday, June 29, 2013.
