Rising Tides Lifting Yachts by MacGregor Harp

October 12 - 26, 2012
Rising Tides Lifting Yachts is an exhibition by MacGregor Harp celebrating the release of his new book American Flags Portfolio vol 01. The exhibition features canvasses with printed flags that have been manipulated using digital processes and out-of-the box distortion techniques which push their values to opposite extremes. These works are also accompanied by his 740 page flip book The Experimental American Flag DMT Trip, to be produced in a very short run using lulu.com. The collection considers what happens when one of the world’s most recognizable symbols is stripped of its contexts by reducing it to abstraction, while addressing questions of production and authorship.
