Daniel Luedtke, 'Sensory Integration Therapy'
eight offset prints on vellum and pale gray stock in hand-screenprinted folder, 16 x 10.5"
Much of Daniel Luedtke’s recent work investigates the “neutral” surfaces of gallery, studio and home - walls, frames, corners, windows, lights, and mirrors. These non-spaces and empty containers for objects, people, or images are recast as an abstracted site of physical longing and political tension. Through the repeated folding and overlapping of the picture plane and uncomfortable, often harsh juxtapositions of materials, a host of weird feelings and textures emerge.
For his No Coast Edition, Luedtke presents a core sample of his studio production and concerns of the past year. The work is a compilation of layered prints, depicting narratives of cooperation, ritual, and creation. The eight prints are collected in an artist designed screen-printed portfolio.
