The convergence of the potent domains of technology and art is the focus of Agora Gallery's latest exhibition, Pixel Perfect: The Digital Fine Art Exhibition. Pixel Perfect features sixteen artists whose innovations have explored the creative potential of this powerful medium. Endless avenues of imagination are traversed as these artists capture images to shape and mold them to their particular taste and artistic vision, on display from January 26th to February 15th, 2007 (the opening reception is on February 1st), at Agora Gallery, 530 West 25th Street, Chelsea, New York. The artists, working at the forefront of their medium are Anna Aizic, Judith Barath, Jack Breit, Tim Brumbeloe, Samuel Burns, Richard Harman, Steve Karol, Airton Kieling, Heather LoBue, Stephen Looney, Elizabeth May, Jennifer Pum, Carolyn Quan, JL Soto, T. Mikey, and Adrienne Van Swan. Judith Barath has been a Premiere Portfolio Artist at absolutearts.com since 2001.
Digital artists use powerful visual programs to render imagery or create completely original forms. Amongst the unity of its shadowy depths and classical appearance, the art of Tim Brumbeloe belies its creation as a multi-layered digital image. Jack Breit and T. Mikey juxtapose disparate elements in the creation of their captivating photomontages. Probing further into abstraction, artists Airton Kieling and Stephen Looney create realms of soothing waters and fiery abysses. Jose-Luis Soto bridges the gap between science and art through his investigations of DNA. As a testament of the digital capacity to render organic forms, Anna Aizic creates joyful, fluid figurines and Judith Barath features rapturous figures rising out of swirling, feathery clouds.
Choosing to employ the natural beauty of a photograph, manipulating its appearance while preserving the essential qualities, artists Steve Karol and Elizabeth May explore familiar objects in a severely cropped and zoomed perspective that forces the viewer to reexamine often-overlooked textures and nuances. In a similar vein, Samuel Burns creates original steel sculptures, then captures and transforms them with a camera and computer. Richard Harman, Heather LoBue and Jennifer Pum take a more literal approach to their work. These artists begin with original photographs then digitally alter their appearance to create an implied narrative infused with a sense of drama and wonder. Carolyn Quan and Adrienne van Swan expertly confound layering and space to explore spiritual and metaphysical concepts with beauty and charisma.
Pixel Perfect will fascinate audiences with a riveting selection of the world’s leading digital artists. Each work is punctuated by a comprehension of traditional media, while exploring new venues of expression offered by today’s burgeoning technology.
