Andrew Lodwick – "Excerpt D"
Andrew Lodwick – "Excerpt D", screenprint, 2011
High art from Low lands
On May 2nd, 2014 Martha Street Studio will be launching the first solo exhibition of Winnipeg artist Andrew Lodwick. Since graduating with a BFA from the University of Manitoba School of Art in 2005, Andrew has been working at Martha Street Studio as studio technician and screen printer. During his tenure at MSS he has collaborated with many of Winnipeg’s mid career and established artists, utilizing his considerable technical skills in producing limited edition prints and folios. He has also instructed scores of interested, emerging and committed artists to the possibilities of screen printing.
In this exhibition Andrew brings his aforementioned considerable technical skills into play as he considers notions of authorship, the role of style and the burden of identity in visual art production. The narrative-based and graphically complex works hint at lost and possibly forbidden knowledge, reference illustrated pulp novels and textbooks, and provide a deep imaginative journey into the pleasures (and nightmares) of graphic representation. Martha Street Studio is excited to be able to offer this long overdue exhibition of the artist’s own creative practice. Please join us on Friday, May 2nd from 5-8pm in celebrating the launch of BOG - High art from Low lands.
BOG – High art from Low lands will encompass both the main gallery space and the project space.
The artist will be present at the opening reception on Friday, May 2nd and will be giving a talk about his work on Saturday, May 3rd at 3pm.
