Gallery 72 is pleased to present, Endi Poskovic: It Was All Just a Dream: Selections from 2003 – 2013 with an opening reception on Friday, September 13 from 5:00 – 9:00 p.m. There will be a Gallery talk on Saturday, September 14 at 12:00 noon. The artist will be present at both events. The exhibition features over 30 vibrant woodcut and stone lithograph fine art prints. The exhibition continues through October 12, 2013. Artwork in the show is available for purchase.

“We are thrilled to present a large body of Endi’s newest work,” said John Rogers, Gallery 72 owner. “His work is vivid, imaginative, powerful and thought provoking. We think visitors will be captivated by the graphic design, style and intensity of both his woodcut and lithograph prints.” Through the representation of familiar imagery Poskovic’s work proposes a range of eventualities, from hybridized narratives to unexpected scenarios, invoking a sense of place and time, and exploring ideas about displacement, memory and reconciliation. A critical element in many of his relief prints is the placement of invented phrases and words that are cut in wood, placed and printed below the images. Created in actual and/or faux Romance and Germanic languages, the captions contribute to interpretations that may simultaneously appear to be real and fictitious, rational and absurd. The intersection of the image and the written word in his prints reinforces the act of reading the two in a single context as a source of unlimited interpretive possibilities.
