Garrett Pruter’s collages, which explore themes of time and memory, are composed of discarded family photographs from junk stores and estate sales, cutouts from old magazines such as Playboy, and deteriorating maps. Pruter begins by enlarging found photographs and image fragments, then slices them up and subjects them to subtractive techniques such as selectively erasing them with household bleach and scraping away at them with tools, before reassembling them to form surfaces that suggest disintegration. Of his exhibition “Mixed Signals”, Pruter said, “The show revolves around themes of memory and loss, and the genesis of a photo being created and deteriorating through its lifespan.” Pruter has also produced multimedia installations that incorporate mirrors and projected images.
