ABSTRACTED ALTERATIONS TO THE NEW YORK TIMES’ FRONT PAGES BY FRED TOMASELLI

Abstracted Alterations to The New York Times’ Front Pages by Fred TomaselliSince 2005, the artist has been working on a series called The Times, for which he uses front pages from The New York Times as the basis of photograms and collages. The project started under the Bush administration, and was used as a platform on which Tomaselli can creatively explore the global calamities and political nightmares of his lifetime. His painterly interventions underscore the tactility of newsprint, simultaneously dramatising events and often showcasing the ludicrous and depressing realities of the world.
These works will form part of a new show at London’s White Cube gallery entitled Paper, and according to the gallery, “Tomaselli has noted that these political, bucolic images are the ‘daily facts’ of his own life, offering a time line of his own experiences.Abstracted Alterations to The New York Times’ Front Pages by Fred TomaselliAbstracted Alterations to The New York Times’ Front Pages by Fred TomaselliAbstracted Alterations to The New York Times’ Front Pages by Fred TomaselliAbstracted Alterations to The New York Times’ Front Pages by Fred TomaselliAbstracted Alterations to The New York Times’ Front Pages by Fred Tomaselli
