In October of 2014 I generated my first personal website GIF exhibition. It is ongoing and will it will never end. You check that out here.
Similar, but what sets this online exhibition apart is that all of the GIFs have been created while mobile, in transit and in between the movements of life. This is an attractive draw for me as an artist who once by default thought traditionally that art was created in a studio. As in, a very specific physical space for art making. I do keep a physical studio, but the definition of this space has been forever redefined, hence this exhibition contributes to the continued process. If you are new to my GIF works then let me explain more about the process. My GIFs are mostly extensions of physical works that have had a life before they were converted into animations. They were mostly static images taken from my drawings, paintings, sculptures, prints, collage, photos and some video art pieces. With mobile apps, an iphone and a laptop armed with photoshop, creating GIFs and animations have become the most natural and organic evolutions in my work. Sure, I like to also remix the work of existing content, but I’m much more interested in seeing my own work continue becoming. I am currently involved in several ongoing GIF and internet art related projects that I am really happy to share via my site. The last two years have been dedicated to the practice of making GIFs as the subject. 2015 will put more of an emphasis on specific ideas and subjects.
More to come in 2015.
