Erik’s work, 156 Experiences for Active Contemplation: Thought | Action, to be included in The Orange County Center for Contemporary Art (OCCCA) exhibition, “tXtMe,” an exhibition of contemporary creativity using letters, signs, text messages, words, lyrics, poetry, profanity and utter nonsense using digital media, Internet-based work, paint, pencil, neon or…?

Texting with imagery… and hitting “send” is something you might have done with a friend earlier today. Text with beautiful hand-painted illuminations is something right out of the early medieval era. Throughout history, text has been used in artwork to convey messages, be it sacred, political, or simply narrative. This tradition continues today as contemporary artists utilize text, letters and numbers as an integral part of their work.

A4 O2O
Erik’s work, 156 Experiences for Active Contemplation: Thought | Action, to be included in “A4 O2O,” an exhibition of instruction-based art in the CICA Museum, in Gimpo Si, South Korea.

“Instruction-based art can be traced back to Conceptual Art in the 1960s. Now, in our digital age, instructions have become the fundamental structures of our systems: a chain of commands is instantly produced, and it becomes visible, tactile, and ubiquitous. We aim to be an “O2O (Online to Offline) system” that can produce “instructions” as art and make them come alive in our online and offline spaces. The A4 O2O Show Spring 2016 is held from April 14 to May 1, 2016, featuring 11 conceptual artists/teams worldwide: Daniel Chong, 정지수 Jisoo Chung, Erik Austin Deerly, Hunter Elliott, Bethany Hargrove, 장영은 Pinky Jang, Karen KrolakSam Radford, Ryan J Rasmussen, Nuno Vicente, and YUNRUBIN (Joanne Pang & Jonas Rubin). The documentation of works will be archived on the project website.” —CICA

The exhibition was organized by Leejin Kim, installed by Mingi Choi, assisted and translated by Hyeyoun Choi.

Kristen T. Woodward Reviews “Databent”

Databent 54 (ChromaLuxe on aluminum)

Kristen T. Woodward Reviews “Databent”

These new Databent works entice the eye with their views of landscape in saturated hues, and interplay against the transparency of digital creation.  The technological evidence of manipulation is highlighted if not transparently observed through colorful pixilation and linear breaks in the open fields.  I find myself wondering if these works are intentionally challenging the viewers’ sense of beauty and artificiality, or if they are simply masterful compositions of light and texture devoid of extraneous content.

I feel the piece designated # 54 is especially strong, in its fluid gesture of deep green foliage streaking across a blue ground. There is the sensation of watery submersion below, perhaps because for the stretched horizontal orientation of the yellow lines and fading violet trails. The relatively open space in the center heightens the formal relationship between the two sides of greenery pulling and pushing away from each other. I also respond to the square format, which again challenges expectation about landscapes and pictures.
