Carmile S. Zaino, Artist
On Sunday, April 3, Bright Hill's Word & Image Gallery will open "Re-Mixes: From Photography to Collage / The Art of Carmile S. Zaino." The opening reception will be from 3 - 5 pm, and the artist will give a gallery talk at 4 pm. Refreshments will be serviced, and all are welcome to this free event.
The art of Re-Mixing reflects Ms. Zaino's love of letter forms of all kinds, a love that started when she was a student at the Parsons School of Design and continued to grow through her professional career as a graphic designer and art director, which included holding the position of creative director at Newsweek Inc. and Book of the Month Club. For the past 25 years she has also been an adjunct professor at Parsons and, since 2009, a thesis advisor at the Fashion Institute of Technology's MFA program. In recent years, Ms. Zaino has also traveled to China and India, where she photographed street signs she could not read but appreciated as visual symbols and abstractions. When she returned home, she continue to photograph and then remix the symbols that she saw around her every day in New York City and on the roads and in the towns of Delaware County.
The term Re-Mixing describes an artistic process Zaino developed to combine photography and design by deconstructing photographs of typographical signs that she took and transformed into visual abstractions or Re-Mixes. She took the term from a common musical process in which music is broken down into elements and then re-recorded -- or re-mixed -- to create a different piece. She likes to think that her collage-like Re-Mixing is related to the beginning of art itself when primitive humans used a few strokes -- on cave walls, perhaps -- to communicate information with symbols.
