Hey, let’s talk about these blank canvases for a second. An exhibit like this in a museum or gallery is designed to be a commentary on the utility of a space and the perception of said space and the relationship with its viewer.
A viewer goes to a museum or gallery space to view art. The viewer intends to see something because that is their purpose, after all. They come to a series of blank canvases. Upon seeing nothing, inherently the viewer decides to either accept it as nothing and move on or re-examine their perception of what they are seeing. Those who take the time to evaluate what they are looking at are challenged by perception and precondition. A patient audience will be rewarded by the essence of a blank canvas. Affording the viewer the time to examine the space around them and its core function.
Perhaps we could be a patient audience and examine the utility of Tumblr mobile and our relationship with it. We came to view some stuff. We see nothing. Blank. Initially, we’re so conditioned that being patient will allow the image time to load. Yet, still we see nothing. Mostly we accept it as nothing and move on to what will readily reveal itself to us. I submit instead, we take the opportunity to perceive Tumblr as the gallery space that it is.
Or, (and maybe this is just me being a preconditioned viewer) Tumblr could make their fucking app load shit properly! I mean come on, now! What would you have me do? I can get a little addicted to Tumblr from time to time. When I’m away from my computer I open Tumblr mobile to get my fix. Then I get nothing! ENDLESS SCROLLING NOTHING! Make me jones for the sweet sweet gif juice Tumblr. FIX THAT FUCKING APP!!!

These serigraphs are a lovely example of just how effective silkscreen printmaking can be as an artistic medium.
Ces sérigraphies sont un bel exemple de combien efficace gravure sérigraphie peut être aussi un moyen d’expression artistique.
