Black Moth Gallery
is pleased to announce the exhibition Real-time Or Instead which features new and recent silkscreen printed collage works from artist Mark Price. A collection of Price’s collage works from 2014 – 2018 will be on view during February 1 – 28 at the gallery’s store front location on Lancaster Avenue in Ardmore, PA.

Engaged with the silkscreen printing collage processes over the past ten years Price utilizes a self produced archive of printed imagery including optical patterns, found graphics, and gradient color fields that collage into rich and frenetic two dimensional compositions.

The works explore where our psychological and information architecture become one. The resulting compositions operate as high-resolution experiences that attempt to map out a mediation of internalized and externalized information flows. The compositions address the possibility of a static image of today that encompasses our multi-modal experience with an ever expanding built environment.

Recently relocating back to the Philadelphia area from Portland, Maine this will be Price’s first exhibition in the area since showing his collage works in 2016 at Gallery 543 located at The Navy Yard in Philadelphia.
