PRESS RELEASE


“Truly an invention of what William S. Burroughs called The Third Mind - two amazing minds fusing together to create a third, totally separate and unique mind.”

-- Keith Haring, on the collaboration paintings of Jean Michel Basquiat and Andy Warhol

"What is currently compelling is our pervasive cybernetic mode, which plunks copyright into mythology, makes origins a romantic notion, and pushes creativity outside the self.

Remake, reuse, reassemble, recombine—that's the way to go."

-- Elaine Sturtevant, Golden Lion recipient for lifetime achievement at the 54th Venice Biennale

EHC presents "This, That, and the Third", an exhibition by artist KLA featuring his Remix Painting series. Styles are thoughtfully selected and combined together to form a new dialogue. When the attributes of each artist are recollected, glaring divergences become apparent. Visual contrasts become metaphorical, revealing the artworks as conceptual art historical commentaries. The subjects of appropriation, authorship, branding, and originality, also become part of these seemingly simple yet multifaceted pieces where the styles are the medium.
