Levee Contemporary is thrilled to announce the opening of its fourth virtual exhibit, Todd Herzberg’s Just a Guy Sitting in a Chair, on view through May 21. Todd works predominantly in the processes of drawing, relief printing, lithography and animation which create complex stories with absurdist overtones. In Herzberg’s artist statement he explains, “Through the use of autobiographical tableaus my photolithographic prints question the definition of success as a fixed idea, the notion of meaninglessness as an integral part of the everyday, and attempts to embrace the awkwardness typical of growth. My personal grasping for false signifiers that don’t exist extends into the prints through the characters’ actions and demeanor.”
Todd Herzberg received his BFA from Central Michigan University in 2012, his MFA from the University of Kentucky in 2018 and is currently the Assistant Drawing Professor and Foundations Coordinator at Murray State University. His work had been displayed in the U.S. and abroad including: Hatch Show Prints in Nashville, TN, Münchner Künstlerhaus in Munich Germany, Site:Brooklyn in Brooklyn NY, Artist Image Resource in Pittsburgh PA, Hilo Gallery at the University of Hawaii, University Gallery at Inner Mongolia University in China, Firehouse Gallery in Baton Rouge LA, and the Metrospace Gallery in East Lansing MI.
