[refresh] + [redraw] Opening Reception!!

Friday, November 7th 2014 from 7-11pm

 

After our DIGITAL @ SUB call, we are hosting the first in our Digital Exhibition series [refresh] + [redraw] will feature work by Eric Fickes (Atlanta,GA) and Eric Scrivner (Kansas City, MO) [refresh] + [redraw] opens on Friday November 7th and will run through December 14th by appointment. Both of these artists interact through the ways they utilize motion and pattern in their respective digital media.

Eric Fickes is an artist based in Atlanta, Georgia utilizing code and motion detection to create generative artworks. As digital art as a medium evolves, so does our ability to manipulate the way in which we create. Using programming to create interactive works Fickes generates code that detects movements within physical space that then relays a signal moving the brushes to create the final drawing. These brush movements often look akin to Fickes’ other interests such as 1980’s video game and skateboarding culture. Bold outlines and graphic color expand in wild motion, vertical shapes and spikes emerge with each movement caught on camera. His work moves beyond the static encourages viewer to play and become the input for the overall algorithm presented.

Eric Scrivner is an artist based in Kansas City, Missouri. His most recent series of works are bold .GIFs that make use of optical illusions to showcase the depth of the animation’s movement. The work in the Cyclical Ritual series are meditations on the act of waiting; a look at potential, and the utter lack of closure that follows. It’s a reflection on twiddled thumbs, nail biting, incessant toe tapping, and constant phone checking. The works rotate, twist, lumber, bumble, and fall in different directions without ever really making any progress.

In the weeks following we will be hosting programming that will correspond with the works shown. Stay tuned to our WordPress and Facebook pages for more info!

 

Free Programming with HOME // SPACE Exhibition

This Sunday May 18th from 1-3 PM at Subterranean Gallery, HOME // SPACE Artist R. Shrum and Subterranean Gallery Director Melaney Mitchell will host a conversation about What Makes Contemporary Space.

We will consider the work in the exhibition, and how it relates to the way in which we perceive contemporary space.

Things to consider:

How do we make a space our own? What makes a place feel like a home? What makes a place seem “lived in”? How does the space of the home compare and contrast with our online space? What stories to the objects in our homes hold? What kind of objects do we accumulate to build a home?

Join us! This workshop is free and light refreshments will be provided.

 

Another HOME // SPACE program to keep on your radar is next Sunday May 25th from 12-2 PM, we will be hosting an ART BRUNCH where we will discuss the topic of Gender and Identity in the Home.  Seating is limited and brunch will be served complete with food and drink.

Please RSVP to ART BRUNCH as seating is limited by emailing subterraneangallery@gmail.com.

 

We hope to see you at one of these two events. These are both great opportunities to see the exhibition if you have not yet already. To schedule an appointment for another day email Melaney at subterraneangallery@gmail.com
