Ian Trask: Strange Histories
curated by Bruce Brown
July 18th, 2019 — September 14, 2019
About The Show
Using vintage slides, Ian Trask creates his own stories. By combining found 35 mm slide photography, analog collage, and assemblage sculpture, Trask creates imaginative double-exposures that transcend the boundaries of time and experience resulting in “strange histories” - Michelangelo’s David presiding over a smorgasbord of Twinkies and other junk food; the Mona Lisa meeting the iconic Campbell’s soup can.
Trask has found “that without prompting, people would share how the collages sparked their imagination. And oftentimes the narratives and perspectives conjured in their heads differed significantly from my own experience of the work - in the best possible way.” Like any great story or history, the narrative is shaped by and understood through personal experience.
Come experience the show and conjure your own strange histories from Trask’s stunning images.
