PIXNIT Productions is pleased to announce the upcoming exhibition, "Hello my name is PIXNIT" at Judi Rotenberg Gallery in Boston. This site-specific installation is on view May 3rd- June 1st.
Embracing the contradictions in our contemporary celebration of Graffiti and Street Art, PIXNIT works synergistically as a street artist who illegally stencils work in public places, and as a gallery artist who exhibits commissioned work in commercial and institutional spaces. The name PIXNIT is derived from the Latin word pinxit, often included in the signature of paintings from the 1800’s, meaning she/he painted this work. For this artist, the identity PIXNIT functions as both a veil of anonymity as well as a means to name a finite body of work.
In her new exhibition titled, “Hello my name is PIXNIT,” the artist presents a pictorial space where architecture is flattened and painting becomes three-dimensional. PIXNIT integrates her signature-stenciled wall paintings with mixed media sculpture and dimensional painting, creating an opportunity for interaction, as well as invitation to physically navigate around the various sites in the show. Overall, the exhibition is an installation that negotiates space and plays with the expectations of the viewer.
