Today Cedar came by my studio and we try some new stencils inside and outside to avoid the fumes. Gorgeous day for working in the project today!!
In the studio
Silk Screen, Serigrafía
Silk Screen from Juan Rojo on Vimeo.
Edited scene from "Sarah Laing, Portrait in Twelve Chapters" where it is depicted the silk screen printing process.
We will be doing a lot of printing using silk screens. Some people were curious about the process, you can take a look at the process of coating, exposing and printing screens in this edited scene from a video I shot some time ago, "Sarah Laing, a video portrait in twelve chapters".
Para este proyecto vamos a emplear muchas serigrafías. Alguna gente me ha preguntado acerca del proceso así que decidí publicar esta secuencia donde se puede ver como se preparan las pantallas y se imprimen las imágenes. LA secuencia pertenece a un video que rodé hace tiempo, "Sarah Laing, video retrato en doce capítulos".
Partnership House is a collaborative project between Cedar Lorca Nordbye and Juan Rojo that will be installed in at INTERSTRUCT , a multi-venue, site-specific exhibition of art in non-art spaces throughout Lexington.
Lexington Art League invited collaborative artist groups and individual artists to create new works in response to a specific location, considering architecture, history, place, and other contextual information to redefine the space through art. With a focus on experimentation and transformation, the works presented will activate space and offer transportive experiences for all who move through them.
Opening Reception Oct. 3, 6p-9p, FREE
Exhibition Hours: Wed.-Sat., 10a-6p, FREE

The Distillery District is home to two more INTERSTRUCT installations, both to be revealed during November's gallery hop! Housed in the historic James Pepper Barrel Warehouse at 1170 Manchester Street, Ohio-based artist Taryn McMahon will explore the rich history of bourbon in Kentucky in her project Raised from the Seeds Sown in Spring, an installation of cascading translucent paper curtains with hand-printed images of rye, corn, wheat, barley, and oak- all plants used in the production of bourbon. Also located in the Pepper Distillery campus at 1228 Manchester Street is an installation by Knoxville-based artist Jason Sheridan Brown. His project explores the complex relationships between coal, the railroad, and Kentucky industry.
