Breach

Breach @ Rod Barton Gallery “Rod Barton Gallery is pleased to present Breach, an exhibition focusing on four young artists who embrace photography’s plasticity and it’s ability to exist in multiple contexts.

Kianoosh Motallebi

Kianoosh Motallebi Work from The Matrix. “Incandescent lamp fused with a flourescent light. The two otherwise incompatible technologies are forced to operate in the same space, creating a dynamic system that ultimately leads to dysfucnction of both light sources.” - Kianoosh Motallebi via Triangulation Blog

David Raymond Conroy

Davi Raymond Conroy Work from his oeuvre. “From spiritual transfiguration to critical resistance, some form of distance has always been attributed to the artwork. This distance has historically been considered somewhat revelatory in that it announces a beyond that might open to either sacred or secular enlightenment, and perhaps more recently politics. That the artwork […]

Daniel Freytag

Daniel Freytag Work from Monolith Alright, I am going to take a quick stab at this work based purely on how the aesthetic of these pieces fit in the scope of contemporary works.

Tim Steer

Tim Steer Work from his oeuvre. “How do we account for the affect of materiality in a particular work? One way to think about it is as a process. This is not an original point. In “The Time of Digital Poetry: From Object to Event”, Katherine Hayles develops a more sophisticated description of materiality than […]

John Stezaker

John Stezaker Work from his oeuvre. “John Stezaker’s work re-examines the various relationships to the photographic image: as documentation of truth, purveyor of memory, and symbol of modern culture. In his collages, Stezaker appropriates images found in books, magazines, and postcards and uses them as ‘readymades’. Through his elegant juxtapositions, Stezaker adopts the content and […]
