Alex Sutcliffe | Syncing Matter
September 2 to October 22, 2022
Public Reception: September 16, 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm
In Syncing Matter Alex Sutcliffe experiments with an array of digital and physical processes to explore illusionary qualities of contemporary image making. An eclectic interest leads the artist into chance combinations of mediums and materials; for instance paintings made from CGI-constructed scenes, altered by deep learning algorithms and then printed onto hand-textured surfaces. The physical presence of texture and dimensionality is elevated in the works - contrasting the hyper-flat digital screens used to compose them. By spontaneously shifting between digital and physical forms of image production, Alex’s work visualizes the effects of an accelerating pace of image consumption in the current age.
