On Saturday 16th March @ 7pm thegallery8680 will host the opening reception for Denise Lion | Solo Show
Denise Lion As an artist who works in a diverse variety of media, I experiment with aleatoric processes to create strong personal moments, masterfully, by means of rules and omissions, acceptance and refusal and by enticing the viewer round and around in circles. I often allow the inventive process to be decided by the hands of fate. With the digital glitch these unexpected visual disruptions are spontaneous and accidental in appearance, caused by digital means. My art is associated with my preoccupation with the acceleration of technology and its multifaceted advances in our lives. In my art, I try to draw my audience to both the negative and positive outcomes associated with our daily uses of technology. My works do not place an identifiable form, rather, the results are taken apart to the extent that significance is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multi-layered. I use a visual vocabulary that addresses many diverse social and political issues. My work incorporates time as well as space allowing an imagined and experiential universe that only emerges bit by bit. My art utilizes lo-fi visual effects like stop –motion which gives a tangible eminence and a human element to the art piece. I create short narratives using miniature robot sculptures made of discarded electronics. I use electronic parts effecting a robotic look that reflects technologic culture. I create a look of entropy in a futuristic environment, creating a poignant and psychological disturbing narrative.
