Joe Rudko at Davidson Gallery

Davidson Gallery in Chelsea is currently presenting “Afterimage”, a solo exhibition of recent work by Joe Rudko.

To create his works on paper Rudko slices up found photographs into rectangular strips. The actual photographic images become abstract patterns. Using very specific dimensions for the strips, they are assembled into patterns that mimic the look of weaving.

“MIRROR” from 2023 has a vertical axis of reflective symmetry. The symmetry is quite exact for the size and shape of the pieces of photographs. The symmetry for coloration is more of an approximation. Photography is a very important medium in contemporary art. I find it fascinating to find mathematical concepts addressed through these images.
