When Pixels Become Paint – Ruby Reding

11 Jan 2018 - 10:00 am to 28 Jan 2018 - 5:00 pm
King's Art Rooms

Ruby Reding writes: “I am a third year English student at King’s with interests predominantly in contemporary poetry and visual culture. I am currently writing a dissertation on Nancy Spero. Aside from Spero, I am influenced by Pipilotti Rist and the NewHive digital art platform.  My exhibition is an exploration of the tensions between oil paint and the pixilated screen, between concealing and revealing objects. I have been thinking about the body, it's skin, it's space, and it’s intersections with the frame and surreal landscape. Working on mediums such as acetate, shower curtains, and the screen, this exhibition invites you to question the canvas form.  Can you put flesh into words? How does emotion play out on screen or in paint? What does it mean to pour something down the sink? Is digital painting a lazier medium? How does it change indefinitely the way we think about paint?”

Come along on January 15th for a showing of some additional short art videos, drinks and zines. For more information please contact: rr506@cam.ac.uk.
