Travis Janssen – Helvetica: Uppercase

Preston Jackson Gallery


Aug 26 2022

Aug 26 – Oct 22, 2022

A confluence of video, experimental typography and photo processes, Janssen’s work translates letterforms from the Helvetica typeface into meditative geometric images, implying vast space and structure onto a two-dimensional plane. This exhibit of video and prints investigates the nature of vision and transformation of the mundane into the sublime. Janssen is currently an Associate Professor and Head of the Printmaking Program at Southern Illinois University Carbondale.

Art Reception: Saturday, Sep 17, 2022, 6:30-8:30 pm, complimentary refreshments, free admission, donation requested. Meet the exhibiting artists and view their artwork in three galleries.
