Opening this week:
Desire Lines & Garden Paths: A Selection of Prints by AutumnSeventy
Artists' Reception: August 15, 8-11pm
About Micah Hahn (AutumnSeventy): Micah Hahn is a graphic designer. He spends his off-hours designing typefaces, making prints, making work with his wife under the name Mr. and Mrs. Hahn, and overseeing the creative direction for the Institute for Art and Olfaction.
Desire Lines & Garden Paths comprises over nine years of work by graphic designer Micah Hahn. Hahn's use of figures--the astronaut, the lily--hand foiled in gold, reiterates the nobility of these forms, now often dulled in the frenzy of an overactive media culture. His treatment of typeface as an aesthetic medium investigates the form as a means for conveying what lies beneath the words spelled out therein. Viewed together, this selection of prints speaks to the still precious commodity of the artists' hand within a digital age.
