All three artists will display some hint into process, further allowing visitors into the mind of artistic vision.
random (8) is an installation of woodblock prints combining digital technology with analog printmaking. I write looping algorithms that generate images of noise — randomized pixelated grids. These grids are physically mapped by hand onto a printing matrix using woodblocks, and once set, are inked and printed on paper with a table-top etching press.
Each of these artworks is offered as the beginning of many possible continuums, and the sculptural rearrangements of the participants manifest some of the infinite possible outcomes. Each outcome, in turn, could form the basis for future transformations. By yielding artistic control, I aim to facilitate an opening for unpredictable change and a space where pleasure and even joy can emerge naturally.
The graphics represented here are not merely paintings, they are multi media sculptures as well. Their graphic lines leave the canvas and tear out into space, curl up or wave appealingly and sometimes rejoin the canvas, sometimes remain suspended in space. though appearing delicate, the disjointed parts are actually quite sturdy and hold their carefully considered shapes.
