Oliver Dorfer’s “The PulpitProject” opens today at New York’s Freight + Volume. The exhibited work will remain on view until February 21, 2009 at the gallery, located 542 West 24th Street, New York, NY.
This is a first New York outing for the young Austrian Dorfer, and the works he is showing come from his ongoing “pulpproject” series, so named for his source material drawn from the pages of comic books and other cheap publications. Subjecting them to collaged and Photoshopped mutation, Dorfer then paints them on the reverse side of large sheets of Plexiglas. The remarkable results, super-smooth and more than six feet square in the full-scale pieces, meld the appearances of Pop art, shop windows, and medieval woodcuts. It makes for an unsettling mix.
