March 20 – April 24, 2023
1743 Commercial Avenue, Madison, WI 53704
Reception: Friday, April 7, 5-8 pm
Tandem Press is excited to host Singularity, a Master of Fine Arts Thesis Exhibition by Cullen Houser, University of Wisconsin-Madison MFA candidate and 2022-2023 Tandem Press Studio Project Assistant.
Singularity presents a selection of mixed-media works that combine printmaking, painting, neon, and digital media to explore the intersection of digital and analog through the materiality of their muddled union. Facial features, patterns, and lights are all subject to manipulation and distortion implemented through both artificial and tactile means.
About the Artist: Cullen Houser is a multidisciplinary artist working in printmaking, neon lights, and digital media. Through his layered assemblages, the interactivity of various materials blur the lines between analog and digital spaces. Houser received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Sonoma State University with an emphasis in printmaking in 2018. Houser received the Tandem Press Gabriele S. Haberland Travel Award in 2022 and the UW-Madison Temkin Exhibition Award in 2023. Houser is currently a Master of Fine Arts candidate at the University of Wisconsin-Maidson where he works as a Project Assistant in the Tandem Press studio.
