KRAUSE GALLERY is pleased to announce the opening exhibition of new smoke and mixed media
works by Rob Tarbell - “All Ages”
Rob Tarbell Artist Statement:
Joe Strummer, cofounder, lyricist & lead vocalist of The Clash has said, “I don't like saying, 'You're a punk or you're not.'“
Now-a-days we are all a little “punk”, but In the garageland of punk rock music culture circa 1980, necessity meant show flyers were made with limited tools and resources – scissors, glue,
some sort of image - found or created and a Xerox machine. These tools were immediate, available and affordable and the results were as merciless and gorgeous as they were beloved
and derided.”
The advent of desktop computers came during my own brief professional music career sometime after this. Computers provided quick and easy wizardry to create slick and clean artwork for my show flyers and album art, but these computer-generated images somehow lacked character and soul. My music and art-making lives were kept separate. I knew there were connections, but I never capitalized on the impulses to employ the visual side of music as subject matter for my fine art. That changed after recently reading this quote from Joe Strummer. I suddenly became aware of the similarity between what I had been doing in those
formative years with what I am doing in my studio now.
All Ages reawakens the cut and paste culture of those punk rock Xerox collages. The unpredictable black tones of the Xerox have been replaced by smoke, captured to create an image on a surface. The imagery itself is paradoxical in nature addressing both the fictional and the documentary and parallels the process; balancing accident with control; orchestrating
chaos. The process encourages and discourages the flow of smoke, transposing the photographs and collages into ‘cover’ versions of the originals.
