Good Work Gallery presents Factory Fictions, an exhibition curated by John J McGurk.

“Factory Fictions” highlights the work of two artists using just a few of the forever expanding technologies available to artists in the 21st century. The artists in this exhibition are creating a whole new aesthetic vocabulary and sensibility, while also embracing shifting notions of production and commoditization. “Factory Fictions” features the work of two emerging artists Andrew Graham and Matthew Plummer-Fernandez.

Andrew Graham is a painter based in Brooklyn, NY. Presenting a brand new series of works created solely on his smart phone, Graham has truly made the city his studio. Able to paint at any place, any time, he is using technology to fulfill his own desire for creative production and simultaneously modernizing the traditional notion of the plein air painter. Graham’s large-scale prints are a window into the lyrical and frenetic world of an American city that never sleeps.

Matthew Plummer-Fernandez is a designer and artist based in London, England. Using 3-D scanning technology, photo equipment and custom developed 3-D interfaces; Plummer-Fernandez takes everyday household objects and creates new and visually stunning 3-D sculptures. With his works, Plummer-Fernandez is not only working with the formal aspects of representation, but quite possibly revolutionizing our ideas about the production and showcasing of art and artifacts.
