Anonymous Landscape – Janos Korodi

January 30 – February 27, 2016 ( Opening Reception – January 30, 6-8pm)

The exhibition aims to show the artist’s paintings called Motion Pictures. The series uses Google Streetview as its primary base and unfailing cache. As the title states, the paintings are indeed anonymous landscapes, in terms of lacking a specified location. Engaging the viewer with a moving, ephemeral phase of a digitally generated vision, arrested and transformed into a masked gesture, a lyrico – abstract – extra-realism. The images of the 9-eyed camera and the panning motion, as it is pushed forward, produces footage that simulates velocity.

 Glitch Aesthetic – Phillip McConnell

January 30 – February 27, 2016 ( Opening Reception – January 30, 6-8pm ) 

Glitch art is the aestheticization of digital or analog errors, such as artifacts and other “bugs”, by either corrupting digital code/data or by physically manipulating electronic devices. Currently Glitch Art is an underground digital art form. The concept of Glitch Art has existed since 1962. The purpose of me attempting to join the gallery or even writing this is to show digital art in a different medium, as well as expose it to a different audience that may not have access to it. Also the goal is to educate the general public on the subject of Glitch Art

Automaton – Kate Eggleston and Christy O’Connor

January 30 – February 27, 2016 ( Opening Reception – January 30, 6-8pm)

 Automata were created in the idealized image of humans, but some rejected this facade.  They began exposing their wires and removing their guise to appear less human and more technologically primitive.  A sub sect of automata continued these robotic body modifications to extremes, at times so severe that they became fragile and began to lose function and purpose.  At the risk of being destroyed by those who consider them to be damaged and useless, they hid themselves away. To continue existing on their own terms, they became an amalgamated community, making modifications and repairs on one another; taking care of one another has become their new objective.
