current local air: ALLIE D. CAESAR

Allie Drew Caesar is returning from a near decade-long professional practice as both a printer and artist in Chicago. He is the founder of artist label Downfall Arts, which centers around social commentary of the present and past and how it can play a role in our future. He earned his BFA in 2013 from the School of Art Institute of Chicago and has since gone on to become a master printer in the medium of offset and letterpress printing. His work has appeared in publications such as The Journal of Artists' Books, Lumpen Magazine, Smoke Signal's Publication Desert Island and has been collected in the library of over 40 academic institutions including: Yale, Harvard, and The Museum of Modern Art. 

First utilizing the shops Heidelberg windmill I’m proposing the How to Who Man card line, a collection of satirical comic greeting cards focused on a group of dogs as they co-exist and take part in the ever strange and chaotic human experiment we call society. As both a creative artist and printer with a strong production background, the desire to bring these images to life as greeting cards comes from a personal goal of pushing the boundaries of what is commonly perceived as a greeting card both in content, as well as, production. The end result would be to create cards of high production value that both serve their traditional function but also go beyond that to something more conceptual.

I will also be producing a number of large scale pieces in the form of displayed poster prints. These prints will be a series focusing on future environments of the midwest inhabited by animals.

My residency will be a combination of my established letterpress techniques alongside multi-layered screen printing and wood cutting. This residency will be a great opportunity for me to continue my growth as an artist, as well as, add my skills and creative knowledge to the expanding artistic community of Oklahoma City.

Artist Statement:

Someday we're going to have to sort all this out, this thing called society. We've been trying for years, hundreds in fact, maybe even thousands. I'm not saying I'm qualified or capable, hell I don't even get a discount at Denny's. I'm just a veteran of the workers class war. With all that said, we'll give our peace and if the sheep dog and wolf can someday begrudgingly drink on opposite ends of the same bar, then we've done something for the dream known as reconciliation. 

If I come up short, I'll accept guiding an art form to its evolutionary next stage. If that means the red wolf known as print becomes the coywolf of our new median age, then so be it. Our language is fluid in speech and text, and as those change, so will our mediums and our ability to reproduce art and the power and influence those reproductions have. Let's see what what wonky wolf I can make of print.
