The Projective Eye Gallery presents Double Vision: Photocentric Paintings by Richard Heipp, 1975-2018, on view November 3-March 3, 2019, with an opening reception November 6 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.
Florida artist Richard Heipp investigates the dialogue between painting and photography in an attempt to equate the two media. His airbrushed paintings are manually produced imitations of photographs or digital scans that explore the language and role of photography in contemporary culture. Heipp intends to curtail traditional assumptions about the separation of manual craftsmanship and mechanical production in order to recondition the viewer’s visual consumption of the artwork as image and the artwork as object. He reevaluates what we know as photography and what we think we know as painting.
Double Vision: Photocentric Paintings by Richard Heipp has been organized by the Polk Museum of Art at Florida Southern College in Lakeland, Florida.
