About

"Motor City I" by 2501 is 68 x 48 inches, ink and acrylic on cradled canvas gallery wrap. This piece of original artwork is signed by 2501 and includes an Original Artwork Letter of Provenance from 1xRUN. "Motor City I" comes framed and ready to hang. 1xRUN Artist In Residence 2501 has been hard at work here in Detroit, creating new studio works as well as prepping as massive site wide installation in Detroit's Hart Plaza for the 10th Anniversary of the trendsetting Movement Electronic Music Festival. Designed and painted expressly for a specific abandoned building in Detroit, the poster defines the external space with respect to the building, and left free to move from the top to the bottom, lets in the air and light coming from holes, cuts and sections of the building. The tilt of the poster, between black lines, grey diagonal and white paper allows to see the unfinished inside of the architecture but it reminds also a personal fight against the wind and the difficulty of working with external surrounding. Because a poster of 15 meters for 5 meters is a huge canvas but also a disobedient sail. It able to exist in superposition, above, below, to go up, to go down but it and I were also forced to perform certain actions. Starting from the macro, the artist cut the poster into smaller pieces, then recomposed and overlapped them with a dry press. The lines to be printed are cut into an iron plate which is then dipped into acid that bites into the surface of the plate. The expanded lines of the poster became the narrative of the fragmented compositions and traces of a real action and of others micro changes generated by acid in final piece. As the acid affects the iron plates always producing new results even if they start from a preset pattern so the aim of the exhibition is starting from some point to generate new beginnings. An approach that recall external and internal actions and their relationship always produces combined results and trigger other generative processes.
