Established and aspiring art aficionados: take note! SoHo’s always-hip Gallery Nine 5 understands your plight to skirt the cultural cutting edge, which is why they’ve extended an invitation to the opening reception for their new exhibit, Jack Robinson: SCANNOGRAMS.

Robinson exercises a unique approach in his technique: he uses a digital flatbed scanner to capture the people and objects in his compositions, piece-by-piece. I’ve had the pleasure of previewing some of Robinson’s works, and their complexity has a haunting effect – it’s easy to find oneself lost in the juxtaposition of the images on each large canvas. Robinson’s creations comprise up to 150 separate reassembled scans, emphasizing the artistic process, as well as the bond between artist and subject.

Robinson, who studied at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, has exhibited at the Gershwin Hotel, Nine Eyes Gallery, the Carnegie Museum and the Lower East Side Arts Festival, among many others, and his work is held in private collections worldwide.

What: Jack Robinson: SCANNOGRAMS
Where: Gallery Nine 5, 24 Spring St. btwn. Mott & Elizabeth
When: April 16 to May 7

RSVP to the opening reception, on Thursday, April 15 from 7-9pm, at RSVP@gallerynine5.com, call 212.965.9995 or visit http://www.gallerynine5.com for more details.
