Featured works on Exhibition A
Last summer Sam Falls debuted new banner pieces in two group shows at Eleven Rivington and Nicole Klagsbrun, exploring a process which many historians consider a precursor to contemporary photography. In his 2011 exhibition at Higher Pictures, “Everything Keeps Being Nothing,” Falls demonstrated how an artist today might reconcile painting and photography on a single surface. Writing in The New York Times, critic Roberta Smith commended his skillful negotiation between printmaking and advertising. Sam’s commitment and curiosity — along with obvious talent — subsequently landed him on Forbes “Top 30 under 30″ in art and design. Karma published a new Sam Falls artist book called “Life Sized” that you should definitely check out as it gives real insight to his sun-bleach processing and incandesecent love of the outdoors.
