This April PDX CONTEMPORARY ART presents Intermediate Techniques of Photography, an exhibition of images by Joe Rudko that explores both the magic and the limitations of the photograph.
Using collage, drawing and sculptural methods Rudko extends, manipulates and distorts found images to create new relationships of color and line. With an improvisational confidence, he gives once-antiquated snapshots new life through creative play.
Like analog glitches, Rudko’s images stutter and shapeshift, demonstrating the malleability of photographs as representations of reality and as physical objects. Taken with the knowledge that truth is becoming increasingly recognized as an unstable concept in our world, the relevance of Rudko’s explorations becomes more profound.
Joe Rudko lives and works in Seattle, Washington.
