On View July 30, 2016 - October 14, 2016
Girls' Club presents an exhibition of recent collages from T.J. Ahearn, inspired by and created on vintage LP vinyl record albums from the 60s and 70s, in the Annex Space. Gallery hours are by appointment only during August 2016.
TJ Ahearn, the alia and alter ego of curator Jane Hart, lives and works in Miami. Ahearn attended School of Visual Arts in New York as well as both the University of Miami BFA Program and Miami Dade Fine Arts Program. The collages by Ahearn are meticulously crafted imagery hand cut, primarily from vintage and contemporary magazines. Ahearn creates imaginary environments through the inventive layering and juxtaposition of both banal and pop culture visual elements. The collages on view are from the artist's JUKEBOX series, wherein all imagery is pasted directly onto the back of vintage LP jackets, which also enclose the original vinyl.
