"Keyword:" MFA Thesis Exhibition by Tim Stone.
Exhibition opens Friday, April 1st 2022, from 5:30pm - 9pm
The artwork on display will be large scale mixed media paintings that explore the current hybrid relationship between our physical and digital spaces!
"I replicate, imitate, and steal digital languages to express how confusing and lost it can be to operate in a world that is both super connected and isolating, mediated through a screen. The algorithmic ways of processing information through coding and keywords seems rather abstract to me, even unintentional or misunderstood.
My work sutures digital efficiency and painterly inefficiency through physical marks and colors that are rambunctious, fiery, and ambiguous in their affect. There is tension between the ordinary and the superlative, and between what is natural and artificial. I examine how bemusedly liminal our physical and digital spaces have become." - Tim Stone
