EXHIBITION OPENS: Saturday, Febraury 21st 6-8 PM -artists Alexandra Grant + Thomas Feulmer will be in attendance.

The new exhibition at Marty Walker Gallery there’s something I’ve been meaning to tell you… , presents a compelling contemporary survey of emerging and mid-career artists utilizing text as a means of visual and conceptual communication. Artists include Mark Flood, Thomas Feulmer, Archie Scott Gobber, Alexandra Grant, Mickey Smith and Wayne White.

LA artist Alexandra Grant collaborates with hypertext writer Michael Joyce to explore the relationship between image, written word, and the effect of language through the context of color, shape, and arrangement among other aspects. Through the intermingling of these elements Grant creates a new hybrid which is neither language nor image, yet both at the same time. Grant was recently the subject of a Focus exhibition in 2007 at the Museum of Contemporary Art in LA -and the catalogue from the exhibition is available for purchase @ by clicking the image below.
