Mixografia is pleased to present Self-Portrait, the studio’s latest edition and first collaboration with artist Alex Israel. These prints will be exhibited with a reception for the artist at Mixografia, 1419 East Adams Boulevard, on Saturday, November 4th from 2:00pm to 4:00pm.
In Self-Portrait, Alex Israel takes a visual approach that closely references Southern California popular culture. His use of a nostalgic color palette evokes a 1980s Americana sensibility, and emphasizes the notorious Southern California light often portrayed in film and television. This suite of six prints depicts the artist’s face in profile, replacing his features with an array of bright gradated color fields, distinguishing each element with sharp contours and simplified forms.
