Excited to go to the newest incarnation of Monkey Town tonight.
When I first moved to Brooklyn Monkey Town was one of my favorite places to go. They are directly responsible for my collection of multi-function laser tigers!

Doug Rickard

Posted in art, chelsea, photography by cheapandplastique on October 20, 2012

This exhibition was not yet open when I was in Chelsea the other day but I am looking forward to seeing these prints this week.

Doug Rickard at Yossi Milo Gallery
Exhibition open from October 18 — November 24, 2012. More info here.

From the gallery’s press release:
A New American Picture depicts American street scenes, located using the internet platform Google Street View. Over a four-year period, Rickard took advantage of Google’s massive image archive to virtually explore the roads of America looking for forgotten, economically devastated, and largely abandoned places. After locating and composing scenes of urban and rural decay, Rickard re-photographed the images on his computer screen with a tripod- mounted camera, freeing the image from its technological origins and re-presenting them on a new documentary plane.

The low-resolution images that Rickard favors have a dissolved, painterly effect, and are occasionally populated with figures who acknowledge the camera, but whose faces are blurred, masking their identity. The photographs are thus imbued with an added surrealism and anonymity, which reinforces the isolation of the subjects and emphasizes the effects of an increasingly stratified American social structure.
