Renovated Repuations is a new body of paintings and collages by Kenney Mencher based on vintage photo booth and passport photographs. Mencher ties this in to a blogging project in which he invites readers to submit flash fiction of up to one thousand words to go with the pieces of art. The authors of the chosen stories receive a related drawing. The works lend themselves to rich narrative, as there is a lot of scope for adventure provided by Mencher. As to the reputations in questions, it is up to the writers to make ’em or break ’em.
Artist: Kenney Mencher
Renovated Reputations opens at San Francisco’s ArtHaus and runs through June 25, 2011.
