Embodied Algorithm: [Re]embracing the Analog - New Works by Ira Greenberg

September 8, 2017 - October 8, 2017
Hawn Gallery

Embodied Algorithm: [Re]embracing the Analog presents new works by Ira Greenberg completed over a two-year period. Greenberg explores the continuum between computational (digital) and human (analog) - implemented algorithms. The ultimate pieces confront viewers with large-scale snapshots of intimate moments among Greenberg’s subjects.

 Greenberg’s work is a strong departure from his previous series. His work has gradually moved away from the digital sphere and into the tactile medium of drawing. His previous project of algorithmic drawings uses self-designed coding software to alter figurative drawings. This current series of drawings moves Greenberg even further from technology. Rather than interacting with a computer interface, he engages directly with faces. The drawings force viewers to question what intimacy looks like and the forms it can take in the digital age of increasing interface-based interactions.

Piecing It Together

2017

Piecing it Together: Danielle Kimzey, Mary Laube & Christopher Reno

March 31 - May 28, 2017
Opening Reception: Friday, April 7th, 6-8 p.m.
Hawn Gallery, Hamon Arts Library   

Piecing It Together features works by Danielle Kimzey, Mary Laube, and Christopher Reno. These three painters share an interest in exploring the constructed idea of ‘home’ and seek to demystify, through their abstract works, this insular domestic space. This collected body of work draws upon the artists' experiences of parenthood and memories of home, and reveals those associations considered as often banal or overly sentimental. All three artists employ a wide range of mediums in their painting practices and rigorously examine diverse modernist and contemporary techniques and ideologies.
