Jewell’s re-purposing and representation of images is varied and impressive; Now & Then brings together a range of works produced across a 30-year period, and provides an opportunity to see developments manifested over time.
Through film, photographs and photo-collages Now & Then chronicles his progression of observations across shifting technological and media perspectives; also in regards to people, as demonstrated by Jewell re-visiting his seminal 1989 film Headcases, whereby he has repeated the same set of questions to the same subjects 30 years on, in his latest film Head2Head.
DoBeDo contributor Dick Jewell is exhibiting his work as part of “Stopping the Sun in Its Course” curated by Jesse Mckee at François Ghebaly Gallery in Los Angeles.
Dick is showing a film and photo-collage shot at Kinky Gerlinky, between 1990 and 1993. Another of his films, ‘Rave+Breaks’ will be screened at the evening program on July 22, 8-10pm.
