Opening reception on Friday, June 28, 2013 from 5:00‐7:00 pm
Zane Bennett Contemporary Art is pleased to announce an exhibition of new media art installations and paintings by three artists: Derek Larson, Inhye Lee and Molly Bradbury. The exhibition opens June 14th in conjunction with Currents 2013, the Santa Fe International New Media Festival, an annual, citywide event. The opening reception is Friday, June 28th at the gallery, 435 South Guadalupe Street, across from the rail station, from 5:00‐7:00 pm to coincide with the Railyard Arts District Last Friday Art Walk.
Derek G. Larson combines digital media with paintings and animated projections. He will be showing light paintings which combine fluorescent light tubes with textured materials to create unexpected patterns. He will also be showing videos of natural phenomenon with motion and sound. The artist has had recent exhibitions in New Orleans, Philadelphia, New York and Helsinki. Larson received his MFA from Yale School of Art and he is preparing for the Hudgens Prize Finalists exhibition in Atlanta at present.
Korean born artist Inhye Lee, is based in New York City and earned her M.P.S. in New Media Arts from the Interactive Telecommunications Program at NYU. She will be presenting Piano: Face Jumble, an interactive video generated by a series of notes played by a performer to create a face. Ten different faces are mixed to create a new face. The screen is divided into parts, and with each note played, a different part of a face appears on the screen. Lee is interested in creating meaningful experiences in public spaces where interaction with real people happens. Through this interaction, ordinary surroundings can be transformed into a playground of the imagination, engaging the audience both emotionally and viscerally with the experience.
Molly Bradbury, video and sound artist working in Santa Fe, NM, has studied music since childhood. Bradbury recently earned her MFA in Studio Arts from the University of New Mexico with a concentration in Electronic Arts. By manipulating video footage and sound recordings, she transforms the ordinary into the phenomenal, allowing the audience to let go of their daily concerns and experience the extraordinary.
In the video Transmission, the artist challenges the viewers’ perception of lnear time. Images in real time are distorted and stretched so that what is perceived is a product of perception and may not be the reality that was filmed. Bradbury is interested in engaging he viewer to become aware of his or her own perceptions by experiencing visual and sonic motion that play against one another.
