Watchlist Artist: Rick Bahto

Jancar Jones is pleased to announce an exhibit of new works by Los Angeles-based artist Rick Bahto. The exhibit will include a selection of photographs and two accompanying 16mm films that will be screened at scheduled times throughout the run of the show.

In his recent work Bahto has become primarily concerned with the intuitive exploration of large collections of material as a way of generating performances, films, and photographs. The processes of photography are central in every stage of these works, which often involve many layers of contact printing, re-photography, enlargement, or projection.
