Art by Nicole Weinstein, Alexis Mackenzie, & Jonathan Grubb
-- Abstract Color Photos by Nicole Weinstein --
Nicole photographs outdoor lighted signs late at night to produce strong color images on a black background. The images are shot on slide film then cross processed, producing a negative with saturated colors. Each photo is mounted on gator board and then on a block of wood.
Nicole recently relocated from Los Angeles where she exhibited work in various galleries, cafes, and bookstores. This particular project has never been shown before, and is her first in the Bay Area.
-- Collages by Alexis Mackenzie --
Alexis hand-cuts images from books, magazines, catalogs, and photographs and compiles them into otherworldy creatures and scenes.
Alexis lives and works in San Francisco. She has shown work at Ritual before, and has been featured in several international art publications, most recently Volumen 3 (Argentina) and Sketchel (Australia). Her web site is www.plantimals.com
