There seems to always be so much duress in the world. To cope, heal, and respond artists often seek to create romantic notions of reality – fantasies and wishes of utopia. The ability for artists to speak to others across physical and virtual space encourages new opportunities for dynamic and meaningful collaborations and explorations. The artwork presented in this exhibition serendipitously comes together as a series of idealized realities. Our Techspressionist artists harness mixed media and digital art to address concerns of ecology and conservation; others have developed rich-photographic compilations considering re-envisioned worlds; and some explore the coexistence of the digital and natural worlds. We are presenting work that questions social, political, and cultural norms through international, collaborative, and hopeful eyes. We are grateful and proud that you are here to join us today.
– Brandon Gellis

This ongoing project, initiated by artist Davonte Bradley, was inspired by the idea of notable collaborations like Warhol and Basquiat, which also takes from the collaborative spirit from the Jazz tradition which Basquiat also drew heavy inspiration from in his own work.  The project involves two artists passing a digital file back and forth to result in a collaborative piece.  Each piece in the virtual gallery has a link labeled “Click for more information on this pairing”.  This link will direct users to a page with all submissions from each pairing. The Kunstmatrix exhibition contains three works from each pairing, but the pairing page may contain additional works.  The pairing pages also contain short biographical texts and/or statements from each artist, as well as links to their websites and Instagram accounts.  If you are interested in any of the works in this exhibition, please contact the artists directly via their website or Instagram account.  You can view the first Techspressionist Collab Exhibition here.

WATCH INTERVIEW

“There are a few main things that inspire my art. The pain and trauma of my past, curiosity in the present, and hope for the future. There’s just as much fun in my work as there is some amount of melancholy. And I think there’s beauty in that. I’ve been creating art all of my life and have been creating digitally for about half of that time. I never attended a traditional art school and I honestly never saw myself becoming a full-time artist. It wasn’t until the pandemic struck and rocked the world that I decided that I needed to stop wasting time and pursue what had been in my heart all this time.”

WATCH INTERVIEW

As a new media artist, Gellis’ creative practice is deeply rooted in his love of working across digital and analog media to explore and create speculative narratives and aesthetics through generative and computer visualizations, virtual, augmented and mixed realities, physical computing, 3D-digital design & 4D motion graphics, and digitally-interactive installation.

#techspressionism

I built an immersive steel aquarium sculpture installation portraying French marine biologist Jeanne Villepreux-Power. She made the first aquarium and discovered the Paper Nautilus mollusks secrete liquid to heal its shell when it breaks. After stepping thru a portal, people experience her discoveries, her challenges, and also hear perspectives via various visual media reflecting thoughts from different time periods that are projecting on the floor and four walls surrounding those inside of this 360° aquatic environment.
BUT due to Covid-19, no one may enter the physical installation for a l-o-o-ng time so using still photos and the interior video projections, I made an immersive 360° video to virtually simulate being inside the aquarium experiencing Villepreux-Power’s animated stories surrounding you without wearing Virtual Reality headsets.

Quietly, quietly, 2021. Digital drawing. I haven’t posted a drawing in a while. I had one of those “What if I can’t draw anything anymore?” episodes. A lot of other creative endeavours in the meantime.

Entitled "Gossipers", the viewer can visualize two persons chatting with one another. The ambiguity of the various components transcend clear messages. It is no wonder that Rorschach tests are dependent on subjectivity.

This series of work was developed from Rorschach's ink blots. Adding a Z-axis it became possible to convert the two-dimensional sign into a three-dimensional object. It is like holding your imagination in your hand.
