Ends Jun 29, 2024
Rees’s new body of works build upon his recent experiments with marbling, an image-making technique that for the artist lies somewhere between painting, printmaking and photography. The process, Rees explains, “reminds me of developing from negatives, preparing the inks on the surface of water, dipping the different canvases into baths, hosing them down, hanging them up to dry and waiting for the result to emerge.” Requiring continuous reflection, Rees repeats the ink application process over many weeks until he finds the right balance of forms. “It is often the case that in the making of a new piece all the previous works will be rendered incomplete by comparison and will be subjected to further revision,” Rees explains. ‘Enormous Changes at the Last Minute’ therefore builds upon an ongoing concern in the artist’s practice to foreground technique and subsume individual works under a collective conceptual unity. The exhibition will be on view at 4654 W. Washington Blvd, LA from Wednesday to Saturday, 11–5pm. Image: Dan Rees ‘The Gesture with Which Narratives Once Began’, 2024
