Joe Rudko


A photographer by training, Joe Rudko’s Object Drawings refer to the perception of truth in the visual. Working with photographic ephemera Rudko acknowledges the physical aspects of the objects with which he works. Ripping, cutting, and folding surfaces, he reacts and extends the found material with paint, graphite, and photographic spotting pen. Through this collage process Rudko has developed a system of inquiry; in which improvisations and conversations engage with raw materials, rendering interpretation vulnerable and unstable.
