Joe Boruchow – Monster Storm

Opening reception Jan 5th

Joe Boruchow is a Philadelphia based muralist and paper cutout artist whose site- specific work is designed to fit into architectural niches and public spaces. Born and raised in the Washington DC area, he moved to Philadelphia in 1997. The self-taught artist started working in paper cutout in 2003 and has been consistently exploring ways to transcend the traditional medium, translating his designs into large scale murals, graphic novels, fine art prints and metal wall hangings. Inspired by his surroundings, current events and architecture, his black and white installations have become iconic in the Philadelphia region. His work explores themes of race, sexuality, politics, history and art, all through the subtractive art of paper cutout. His designs are all created from a single piece of black paper where all the white sections are excised by hand with an exacto blade and all the black sections must connect to the whole. Often quite small, the original paper cutouts are scaled up to fit their intended space. He was a finalist for Pew Fellowship and has worked on major murals with the Philadelphia Mural Arts Program. His graphic novel, “Stuffed Animals” was awarded a Xeric Grant for graphic fiction. As a visiting artist, he is often called upon to lecture and instruct at colleges such as The University of the Arts and institutions such as The Barnes Foundation and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. His commissioned and uncommisioned work have gained a large regional following and has been covered by national and international press and blogs. Exhibitions of his original paper cutouts continue to astonish followers of his work with their intricacy and craftsmanship. The intimate scale of the paper cutouts contrasted with his monumental murals, create a tension between the private and public aspects of the work. The blend of craft and concept combine to create powerful graphic images that transform the spaces that they inhabit.

Mark Henninger & Ken Blahut

Mark Henninger’s “City in Transmutation: AI Vision of Philadelphia” and Ken Blahut’s “Modern Age Paintings & Sculptures” will be on display Sept. 1-30, 2023.

Opening Reception 
Friday, September 1st, 2023
6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Space 1026
844 N. Broad St., Philadelphia, PA 19130

As artificial intelligence rapidly changes the way we interact with the world around us, Philadelphia artist Mark Henninger is wielding it as a tool, resulting in vibrant and intriguing photo-paintings. To create the digital paintings, Mark uses his photos of Philadelphia as substrate, and AI as his brush. His artistic toolset includes digital cameras, drones, knowledge of psychedelics, plus graphics programs. All pieces are printed with pigment inks on canvas, watercolor paper, or giclée art paper.

By contrast, using only his hands, paint, and rudimentary tools, Ken Blahut has created compellingly modern artwork. Ken’s mixed media sculptures embody the antithesis of new technology. Obsolete, discarded, and distressed objects like rusted cans, old tools, and fragments of ruined buildings get new life through juxtaposition, allowing them to be reconsidered and made relevant to contemporary life. Ken’s “modern age” paintings are created with cold wax using a method that combines the traditionally lush colors of oil paint with a medium that is ideal for retaining texture and for layering colors. Abstract and richly atmospheric paintings invite the viewer to contribute their own interpretations.

About Mark Henninger
Born in New York City, Mark Henninger spent his childhood around the world in Africa and Europe. After returning to the U.S. for high school, he studied both traditional photography and computer graphics. His visual art combines his skill with a camera, his embrace of new technologies like AI, and his 30-year push to elevate digital printing to its highest levels.

When he’s not making art, Mark is editor of Sound & Vision magazine, and founder/moderator of Audiophiles on a Budget, one of Facebook’s largest AV discussion groups. He cofounded photo-video firm Imagic Digital, is a Level 10 Google Local Guide, and composes original music as Dub King. Visit markhenninger.com for more information.

About Ken Blahut
From the outside looking in, Ken is what you might call a sleeper. A mild-mannered electrical engineer with a 30-year career at the FAA, having graduated from Cornell. Looking deeper, you find that throughout all this, he studied music, raised a family, took drawing and painting classes, and ran a marathon in every state. After his retirement, Ken has devoted all his bountiful energy to his art. His work has shown recently at Cerulean Gallery and in the Hilton Head Art League Biennale.

Additional gallery visits can be arranged during the month of September, contact ricejodi@gmail.com to schedule an appointment.
