Flicker + Fade is a solo exhibition by Randy Bolton, including large-scale, wall and floor-based, sculptural print installations.

As an innovative print artist, Bolton employs a kind of visual metaphoric language that is familiar, direct and accessible on the surface, but one that is layered to have a more subversive subtext that is rich in double-meanings and ambiguities. Bolton casts, paints and distresses objects for what he refers to as "sculptural prints." His screenprinted images are based exclusively on photographic or documentary evidence - from photos taken on an iPhone of rather ordinary or quotidian subject matter, which are then re-assembled into stage-like settings to introduce a different kind of open-ended, associative narrative structure - one that more fully merges fiction with reality - and one that is reconstructed from a collection of metonymic fragments in which the many seemingly unconnected, unrelated images and objects represent parts of a larger, and not yet defined whole.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through February 27.
