SOUTH HOLLAND, IL –The Art & Design Department of South Suburban College is pleased to announce a special guest artist exhibition titled “Fruit Fly: Summer of the Grasshopper,” by artist Mark Frazer in the Photo Four Gallery from now through September 12, with a closing reception on September 12 at 12:30. The Photo Four Gallery is located in Room 4338 on the 4th Floor of SSC’s Main Campus.
Mark Frazer has been living in Chicago since 1995 and creating art since about 1990. In 2016, he got a phone with a great camera to document his artwork in color pencil. He had just completed a 10-year mandala series. After documenting his artwork, Frazer got to play with his phone camera. In the process, he discovered a technique of multiple exposures in a single shot and then started creating a series of images which he began to call “grasshopping.” Each image is the same motion, the same rhythm, like a haiku, one shot, like a movie still…a rhythm of a breath of a moment. Mark ended up with almost 3000 different images. He limited the series to his commute to and from work and walks around his Chicago neighborhood.
SSC Galleries are open at minimum Mondays through Thursdays from 9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m., and Fridays from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. The galleries are closed on weekends and holidays. The public is welcome to visit art exhibitions and receptions at no charge.
