Miami Artist Donna Ruff’s “utopia” Premieres at San Francisco’s Jack Fischer GalleryAuthor:Michelle Konstantinovsky
Located at the gallery’s new home in suite 201 of the Minnesota Street Project, Ruff’s exhibit includes a series of burned paper pieces titled “The Federalist Papers Undone,” which recreates individual pages of the Federalist Papers using fonts typical of the 1700s. Using a laser cutter to burn the text through a sheet of white paper and using prose from the original document, found on the Library of Congress’s website, Ruff outlined each letter with the brown-tinged residue of burnt paper.
Ruff’s exhibit also includes “La Prensa,” a series of large fabric pieces with transferred newspaper photographs of Mexican and Central American migrant children and their parents on their journey to the U.S. Ruff shifted the colors of the photographs, enlarged them, and printed them onto fabric before cutting and perforating the pieces and spray painted the backs lightly with red ink to cast pink shadows on the wall.
Jack Fischer Gallery is located at the Minnesota Street Project, 1275 Minnesota Street, San Francisco, CA 94107.
