GTonyWithRollieWEBene Tulchin & Paul Johnson – 3D Lenticular Portraits and Abstract Images

August Installation

Gene Tulchin is a practicing painter, photographer, and computer graphics artist who was an Associate Professor at The Cooper Union School of Art for over twenty-five years. Gene Tulchin’s work has been widely exhibited in the United States and in Europe, including at The Museum of Modern Art, and the Brooklyn Museum of Art, Queens Museum of Science, Witkin Gallery, and Siggraph, to name a few. It is at The Cooper Union that Paul Johnson first met Gene Tulchin as his professor of photography back in 1977. Paul Johnson graduated with a BFA from The Cooper Union and went on to be an Emmy award winning Director of Animation and Special Effects for twenty-five years. In 2005 Paul Johnson started working with the 3D artist Gerald Marks who was also one of his professors at The Cooper Union, doing Auto Stereoscopic 3D images. This led Paul Johnson to research the 3D lenticular process and develop techniques for shooting and printing his own 3D lenticular images. Paul Johnson then did 3D lenticular photography for the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Top of the Rock at Rockefeller Center, Softmotion 3D, Adan Frank, Inc., Ball-Nogues Arcitects, and 1-800Postcards. He has exhibited his work at the Ricco Maresca Gallery, ArtExpo, The Armory Show, and the Kaufman Arcade. In 2010 Gerald Marks re-introduced Paul Johnson to Gene Tulchin so that they could collaborate together on printing large format 3D lenticular images. For the past two years Tulchin and Johnson have been working to develop techniques for shooting 3D lenticular portraits, which they are excited to show for the first time at this exhibit.

Vertical Still 1Grant Cutler Palace, 2016

June–August Installation

Analog Lumia Box, Multi­Channel Audio, Neon Light

Palace is an exploration of color, form, and movement inspired by theory and mechanics of early Lumia.

The term Lumia was coined by artist Thomas Wilfred, in the early part of the 20th century, to define the art of moving light. Lumia artists build kinetic sculptures to choreograph abstract, changing compositions of light. This unique art form gained in practice and popularity through the 1950s, only to be slowly forgotten, as film and television became ever more ubiquitous. A small handful of modern artists are dedicated to maintaining and evolving this artform.

Grant Cutler is a South Dakota­born Composer and Multi­Media artist living and working in Brooklyn, NY. For the last decade he has produced music for and collaborated with artists spanning many genres and mediums. Cutler’s recent work explores the phenomena surrounding acts of recollection through experimental sound and kinetic visuals, representing memory concurrently forming and dissolving.
