Using discarded photos from junk stores, estate sales, and old magazines, Pruter enlarges found images and then slices and reassembles the fragments to create new imagery that blurs the line between what is real and what is imagined. For this new body of work, Pruter introduces his recent exploration of multimedia. Drawing on the walls with fractured reflections, the projector and mirror installation continues with the same visual language used in his works on paper. The multimedia installation contains found 35mm slides that are projected onto curved mirror tiles, fragmenting the images into myriad pieces and creating complex compositions out of intimate travel photographs and family portraits. - thru Mar 14
Caskets that had been unearthed by the surging Missouri River. The Missouri broke a levee on July 12, 1993, and scoured the cemetery, digging a deep hole and sending caskets bobbing downstream. The flood ruined 793 of the cemetery’s 1,576 graves, and searchers never confirmed recovering about 150 of them.
