Decoy
1972, 18 minutes
Director: Michael Blackwood

Shown in conjunction with the current exhibition An Art of Changes: Jasper Johns Prints, 1960 – 2018, this short documentary explores how Jasper Johns created Decoy—a series of paintings and prints, one of which is featured in this exhibition—and how it is rooted inside the notions of reproduction, transformation, and memory.

Believing that an image gains new meaning each time it is presented, Johns boldly confronts his own past work, most notably Ale Cans (1964), and uses Decoy as a method of metamorphosis. The repetition of certain motifs allows Johns to confront the change an image goes through when approached from a different angle or placed in a new artistic context. As he notes in the film, “each time a motif is used and reused additional memories accrue, new layers of meaning, and the image itself begins to acquire its own history.” It is through Johns’s reimagining that the items he features in his work take on new life and grow from object to art, thus redirecting society’s interpretation.

Discussion to follow with Alicia G. Longwell, Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Chief Curator, Art and Education and Lorena Salcedo-Watson, Artist, Master Printer, Lecturer and Undergraduate Director, Stony Brook University in the Lichtenstein Theater.

Lorena Salcedo-Watson | Artist, Master Printer, Lecturer and Undergraduate Director, Stony Brook
University

Lorena Salcedo-Watson is an artist and master printmaker whose work consists of large-scale drawings and prints focused on the relationships between the structures and essential qualities of life forms. Based on a fascination with human anatomy, botany, and entomology, her imagery transforms and re-interprets aspects of nature, filtering through personal experience, observation, and imagination.

As an educator, Salcedo-Watson taught intaglio printmaking at Cooper Union for seven years and was on the faculty of St. Joseph’s College. Salcedo-Watson worked at Universal Limited Art Editions (ULAE) for fourteen years as a master printer and collaborator. Salcedo-Watson has worked with artists including Elizabeth Murray, Terry Winters, Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, James Rosenquist, Kiki Smith, Suzanne McClelland, Carroll Dunham, Susan Rothenberg, Julian Lethbridge, Jane Hammond, Lisa Yuskavage, Ellen Gallagher, and Malcolm Morley.
