I’m working on my next installation, Screenburn, for Emulations opening May 5 at @muzeumm.
These in-progress alter candles feature unique Los Angeles architecture.
EMULATIONS is a multimedia group exhibition of Southern California-based artists whose work re-examines our relationship to the multidimensional space of the “hyperreal.” Curators: Brian Thomas Jones and Ed Gomez
Artists: Dani Dodge, Ed Gomez, Ichiro Irie, Ben Jackel, Kiel Johnson, Brian Thomas Jones, and Daena Title.
The artists in this exhibition focus on different ways in which our society is obsessed with producing and consuming images, where images are themselves coveted substitutes for firsthand experience.
And, why not? No region denotes hyperrealism more than Southern California. From Hollywood to Disneyland, the realities we perceive are made not of one, but of multiple truths, locations and false representations.
Dani Dodge and Brian Thomas Jones explore the myth of Los Angeles versus its reality, Dodge with an installation and Jones in photographs. Ben Jackel, Ed Gomez and Daena Title replicate our world in hyperrealistic style, Jackel in sculpture, Gomez and Title in paint. Ichiro Irie fabricates imitations of reproductions, while Kiel Johnson draws ubiquitous objects and transforms them into imagined realities.
