Jared Metzner and I grew up together in a place called Bristol, Connecticut. Through our high school years we spent nights collaborating on zines and comics, searching for new means of expression through crude photocopies and screen prints.
Now, some 20 years later, Jared resides in Chicago as a tattoer and painter. His cast plaster objects and large abstract landscapes are a deep inspiration to me, revealing notions that can only be understood through of a lifetime of shared lines.
I'll hang a collection of originals inks and will have posters and small print sets for sale. I printed a new three card set on the letterpress for the occasion.
The event is one night only, so Chicago, if you hear me please come out!!!
