Ari Marcopoulos “Abandoned Sleep” At Ratio 3
On September 9th, Ratio 3 in San Francisco will open a new show of works by famed and noted  photographer Ari Marcopoulos. As his first solo show with the gallery  (who recently appointed Kent Baer as their new director), Marcopoulos  has centered “Abandoned Sleep” around an installation of 34 abstract  photographic images on newsprint, titled Infiltration. Flanking this  installation are several large scale black and white and color  photographs; portraits, shadowy urban landscapes and dark multiple  exposure abstractions that dramatize the nocturnal tableaux of the  exhibit.
Accompanying the photographic prints and installation are three new  artist multiples: one is a limited edition skateboard deck, the other  two are photogravures that combine the artist’s history of using iconic  imagery and recognizable objects paired with images of graffiti.
