Steve West: “This Place Has a Story”
Anthony Philip Fine Art presents an exhibition of work by Brooklyn-based artist Steve West. DUMBO has served as his home for many years, and he has documented its transformation from geographic “other,” to the gateway of a new Brooklyn, and finally to homogeneity driven by gentrification and speculation. The pronto-plate lithography process that West uses to create these images is mechanical and handmade at the same time. Each begins as a photograph that is manipulated and photocopied onto a polyester plate, from which the prints are hand pulled. As each print in a series is pulled, variations occur, making each one unique.
