Boo Saville - Ghost (2009)

Artist’s statement:

This work is a selection from an edition of 31 unique multiples made from a photo etching of a dead man’s image. These prints have been disrupted by being drawn on, burned or cut, in many ways changing the mark-making process and adding an element of risk to the coherence of the final image. The title for the monoprints, Ghost, is a suggestion of the transient, fluid nature of this process and a play on its obvious, more macabre reference.”

Laurent Laveder - Moon Games

A series of shots that are focused around the moon, a whimsical rethinking of our nearest celestial body—as a lightbulb, a clock, a balloon. The moon can be harvested, snipped, or tossed between playmates. Laveder is able to capture the moon in all her shining glory, in an array of phases, including lunar eclipses.

Vietnam Zippos

Vietnam Zippos showcases the engravings made by U.S. soldiers on their lighters during the height of the conflict, from 1965 to 1973. In a real-life version of the psychedelic war portrayed in Francis Ford Coppola’s Apocalypse Now, Sherry Buchanan tells the fascinating story of how the humble Zippo became a talisman and companion for American GIs during their tours of duty. Through a dazzling array of images, we see how Zippo lighters were used during the war, and we discover how they served as a canvas for both personal and political expression during the Age of Aquarius, engraved with etchings of peace signs and marijuana leaves and slogans steeped in all the rock lyrics, sound bites, combat slang, and antiwar mottos of the time.”
