Upcoming Exhibition


Peter Jellitsch & Theodore Darst work within simulated realities and spaces using both analog and digital processes. Both artists observe, process, and transcribe intangible elements onto perceptible representations. Jellitsch is concerned with the physical process of visualizing the invisible virtual structures that are prevalent in everyday life. For his Data Drawings, he uses his studio’s Wifi bandwidth to generate data that becomes the basis of his hand-drawn diagrammatic landscapes. Darst creates imaginative digital environments with their own internal logic, resulting in self-governing visual systems. Collaging fragments of personal narratives through the endless variables of the digital interface, he makes his realm visibly possible to the viewer through his video works and installation.

Latest Observations

Intangibly Tangible

Artists are continuously advancing and evolving visual language that encapsulates and defines our surroundings. We are in pursuit of an aesthetic understanding of our contemporary moment—formulating existing cultural conditions into tangible forms. Technology plays a big part in that, as we continue to see digital forms making their way into the physical world. The line between the digital and real is blurring, until soon after the distinction will become irrelevant.
