Todd McDonald: Everyday Interference

PropInterval 72

FEBRUARY 2015

The work of Todd McDonald explores the search for meaning in a constructed environment, drawing upon the senses, memories and understanding. Both architecture and images trace their function and meaning back into the history of art where precedent provides context. McDonald’s digital methods and virtual space are confronted with the resistance and limitations of physical materials. The resulting images define structures that are synthetic, but are rooted in a logic that is informed by actual visual experience.

Through digital technology, strategies such as tiling, cutting, pasting, layering, and filtering have come to define and shape the character of the images in our visual culture. When these new systems combine with the conventions of painting, potent and exciting opportunities arise to both deconstruct and expand this contemporary visual vernacular.


 

The Rhythm in Mountains and Rivers: Chinese Landscape Paintings

MountainsAndRivers

JANUARY 2015

For thousands of years, Chinese painters and poets have revered nature as a source of spiritual and artistic inspiration, and landscape paintings have been regarded as the higest form of art. Traditipnal Chinese landscape paintings take towering mountains and craggy cliffs, winding rivers and joyous fishermen, scholars composing poems or dreaming of immortals as their subject matter.

Guisheng Wang and Jiaduo Li not only respect the ancient Chinese landscape painting tradition, they re-imagine and revitalize the approach to landscape. These artists transform traditional landscapes into modern forms, expressing rhythms of mountains and streams.
