Just A Moment…

The title of the show, “Just A Moment…” is inspired by the point at which the HAL 9000 decides to initiate and carry out his plan. I, and most people, have been thinking about this for some time. We are in the midst of a slow collective realization, that leaves us feeling uneasy and precarious. Something that has, for a very long time, dwelt quietly in the shadows of conspiracy theory has, rather abruptly, stepped into the realm of conspiracy fact. The realization that the eyes of computers are opening wider every day and watching us with deep interest. The title is a bit misleading however, in the sense that I actually believe, there is little cause for pessimism and hysteria. This movement of machines into the world of humanity is not at all new.

In fact, Cervantes was aware of this very problem in the year 1600. Don Quixote was profoundly distrustful of the encroachment of machines and his only escape was madness.

I was recently given a beautiful antique printing press. A machine for producing art. Ironically, this machine is even more advanced than anything in Cervantes world, yet at our stage in history, it now oddly represents the value of the human hand in art.

This show is comprised of repetition. Nearly every piece has a print as the base which has then been painted on, drawn on, and again printed on to create a series of entirely unique, hand painted multiples.

Exhibit runs August 1st – 30th

About Ravi Zupa
All of Ravi Zupa’s images are drawn and painted by his hand. He considers books the best way to experience art and has spent decades studying art from cultures and movements that span history and originate from nearly all geographical regions. Being entirely self-taught, he looks for inspiration in works by German Renaissance print makers, Flemish primitives, abstract expressionists, Japanese woodblock artists, Mughal paintings, religious iconography from Europe, Asia and Pre-Columbian Latin America, and revolutionary propaganda the world over. With a distaste for ironic art or the thoughtless appropriation of culture, he integrates seemingly unrelated images in search of something universal.
