Jordan Wolfson is one those ambitious artists who can extract visual significance from the most mundane objects, weaving a narrative of din and detritus that inevitably draws our attention. The New York based artist combines found materials (often culled from Google Image searches), autobiographical ephemera, computer-generated imagery and hand-drawn illustration to produce complex projects that are simultaneously disconcerting and intriguing.
Wolfson’s first solo exhibition in Los Angeles, Raspberry Poser is no exception. In it, he assembles film shot in Paris and New York, found images, and commissioned illustrations (an effective psychedelic montage) to consider the ways in which digital and analog animation are both essential to and representative of modernism and our individual relationship to imagery. Interpreting how individuality and technology intermix is no small task, but Wolfson’s certainly eager to give it a shot.
