"Low Tech/High Tech: The Art Extremes of Bruce Price"
2007-05-19 until 2007-12-31
Word-Wise Modern
Norfolk, VA, USA United States of America

Bruce Price’s Open Studio show features both ink drawing and digital paintings, about 40 of each. The result is aesthetically startling and conceptually interesting. Anyone would ask: why the unusual mix? How does one of the oldest mediums end up side-by-side with the newest? Price became a leading digital artist over the last several years but wrecked his left hand in the process--from 6000 hours of clicking a mouse. What to do? Price started drawing with his right hand, as therapy, an an experiment. Bruce Price has been a Premiere Portfolio Artist at absolutearts.com since 2005.

“An interesting thing happened,” Price reports. “I ended up approaching this very old medium exactly as I had approached digital. Trying to push it to the limit, trying to find what exotic new kinds of beauty might be out there--if only I could discover them. For me, art is all about exploration and discovery. Many people mistakenly assume that digital art is somehow in the computer. No, no more than the drawings are in the ink pen. A lot of my work is part of a surrealist or experimental approach to art. I rarely know where I’m going--only that I want it to be somewhere new and exciting.”

Low Tech/High Tech continues by appointment at Price’s studio/gallery--Word-Wise Modern--in Norfolk, Va. (Contact 757-455-5020.)
