Graphic Havoc

Graphic Havoc

June 8–July 21, 2007
This group show will explore both the ways that computer-generated imagery has affected our sense of style and beauty as well as artists’ insistence on objects and traditional processes. In all these works, artists use hands-on and labor-intensive processes to achieve a digital aesthetic, suggesting the value connoted through time and labor as well as the enduring import of physical objects and human creativity. For instance, Boston-based Reese Inman develops her algorithm paintings through the marriage of computer programming and painting, “merging,” as she says, “an overall sense of technological precision with the inflections and irregularities of the human hand.” Including Reese Inman, Zoë Sheehan Saldaña, Megumi Naitoh, and Sarah Walker, these artists blaze instructive paths of technological and creative coexistence for the future. This show is sponsored by the UVM College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences.
