Machine Reveries: Opening Reception Fri. Sept 6, 6-9pm
The primary focus of my work stems from an interest in technology, geometry, machine aesthetics, architecture and nature. My work explores a dichotomous relationship between the hand and the machine. This series of recent drawings and paintings on exhibit at ARC Gallery & Educational Foundation examine gendered domestic machines from the early part of the twentieth century referencing trade catalogues and actual utilitarian objects. These works hold in common a marriage of both traditional media and digitally mediated computer approaches intrinsic to the development of the images. The mechanical forms within these compositions are transformed casting off their mundane function and asserting an animated physical presence and internal narrative connecting to the human condition.
