April 12 – May 13, 2012
western massachusetts resident Joshua Vrysen (1980 – ) makes pencil drawings (and then makes booklets of these drawings).
some things he’s thinking about while making them:
-marks/movement with resolute intent -other possible worlds / other actual realities -setting up an idea -setting up a situation -no actual fixing of mistakes, only forward motion -puzzles / battles / games -an unaltered static rendering of the past -not taking up too much space -trying to bend or break personal rules and restraints
copies of his books Wheel of Doom/We Love Doom will be available at Flying Object, and can be found online at CHIPSYLVANIA and PRINTED MATTER (where there is also some decent writing about what is what.)
(important: hagakure, gothic futurism, mothers news, style wars, kobo abe, italo calvino, stanislaw lem, chess, comic books, bicycles, terrence mallick, masaki kobayashi, all sounds, so many other drawers and makers.)
