Jack Robinson's Scannograms

Jack Robinson disassembles his subjects with a flat bed digital scanner, then reassembles the images printed pigmented-ink. Meticulous, the artist uses 150 40-second scans per ‘scannogram.’ The jigsaw abstractions interpret the space “between the electronic and the tactile; between the virtual and the real; between the distance of the machine and the inescapable element of human intimacy;” between office equipment abuse and cubism. Check out the show at Gallery Nine 5. “Scannograms,” Jack Robinson, Apr 16 – May 7, Gallery Nine 5, NYC
