CINCINNATI, OH.- Carl Solway presents A New Work by Jay Bolotin: Leaves from a Cast Paper Novel, an exhibition of 33 drawings from an illustrated manuscript, the manuscript itself and an edition of cast paper pieces. This new work is the initial source imagery for The Jackleg Testament: Part Two, a trilogy. This exhibition marks an association of 35 years between Jay Bolotin and Carl Solway Gallery.

The first part of the trilogy, The Jackleg Testament: Part One: Jack & Eve, a woodcut motion picture and an accompanying edition of prints debuted at the Contemporary Arts Center in Cincinnati. The exhibition traveled to the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, the Joslyn Art Museum (Omaha), Vanderbilt University (Nashville), Georgia Museum of Art (Athens) and Bucknell University (Lewisburg, PA). International venues included the John Hansard Museum in Southampton, England and the Pokoleniy Theater in St. Petersburg, Russia. The motion picture won “Best Animation” at the 2007 Santa Fe Film Festival and was honored with a special presentation at the 2009 Festival Internacional De Animacion - Chile.

The initial work for Part Two introduces new characters, scenarios and imagery including Enoch, the son of the only Jewish coal miner in Kentucky; Mr. Sousaphone Man (a former Vaudeville actor turned Wilderness Guide); as well as Claire Cecilia Claire (3c for short), the Woman in the Burning Boat, a Talking Rat, the Spilling Cups, the Bell Ringer’s Thigh Bone, the Woman Who Paints Portraits of Dead Children, the Willing Girl and much more.

Jay Bolotin resides in Cincinnati, Ohio and was born in Fayette County, Kentucky in 1949. He is a prolific visual artist, writer, composer, musician, set designer and filmmaker. His woodcuts are represented in collections including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Seattle Art Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, the Cincinnati Art Museum, the 21c Museum in Louisville, the New York Public Library and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia. Previous theatrical productions include The Hidden Boy, which premiered at Center Theater in New York City and Limbus: A Mechanical Opera, presented at the Opera Theatre of Pittsburgh under the direction of world-renowned director, Jonathan Eaton. Limbus incorporated performers and the artist’s giant mechanical sculptures. As a musician and songwriter, Bolotin has worked with Kris Kristofferson, Merle Haggard and Dan Fogelberg. His own releases include The Songs of Jay Bolotin Volume 1: Shadow of a Beast and the recently re-reissued Jay Bolotin, originally recorded in 1970.

Jerry Uelsmann
Carl Solway Gallery presents a selection of black & white photographs by Jerry Uelsmann. He is best known throughout the world as the modern master of the photomontage. His dreamlike composite images are created by printing elements from multiple negatives onto single sheets of paper. His laborious method of hand printing in the darkroom using anywhere from three to ten enlargers, predates the layered imagery of digital photography by decades. His dramatic, surrealistic, style of image- making challenged conventional notions of reality as depicted in photography and was once considered iconoclastic. His body of work is now a part of the classic tradition of photography practiced as an art form.

Jerry Uelsmann’s work has been exhibited in more than 100 solo shows in the United States and abroad over the past 40 years. A solo exhibition in 1967 at the Museum of Modern Art set the stage for an extraordinary career. His photographs are included in numerous collections worldwide including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Art Institute of Chicago, the International Museum of Photography at the George Eastman House, the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, The National Museum of American Art in Washington, the Moderna Museet in Stockholm, the National Gallery of Canada, the National Gallery of Australia, the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography, the National Museum of Modern Art in Kyoto and the Museum of Photography in Seoul, Korea.

Born in Detroit in 1934, Jerry Uelsmann lives in Gainesville, Florida. He received his B.F.A. from the Rochester Institute of Technology and his M.S. and M.F.A from Indiana University. Now retired from teaching, he influenced multiple generations of students at the University of Florida in Gainesville during a teaching career begun in 1960. His work is the subject of numerous monographs published in the United States and abroad.
