installed in a seamless white room of the gallery, which resembles the studios where digital video and digital photography thrive, the artworks appear to almost float, mimicking the digital space in which most of them were conceived. capturing the diverse experiences of artists working with technology, or influenced by its structures or aesthetics, the exhibition includes paintings, installations, video, animations, and more.

participating artists include: takeshi murata, who is exhibiting a complete computer fabrication, not an alteration or adjustment of reality, but a fully invented image where every detail springs into digital life from nothingness; robert lazzarini with a massive wave-distorted fence sculpture; and alan resnick, whose 3D animation johnny bubble playfully rudimentary modeling belies dark themes of isolation and death. the paintings in post analog studio are mostly abstraction: anne vieux and rannva kunoy make abstract paintings suggestive of the screen, whether the smeared marks of fingers swiping a phone surface or the refracted light off an optical scanner. otto ford includes a piece focused on how an analog brush gets translated into the various brush settings of photoshop, jeff elrod includes a piece that completely blurs out the brush tool, while clinton king uses an actual foam brush to make an illustrator-style thicket of gradients. ara peterson’s immersive wall relief uses cnc-routed slats to carve out beautifully intersecting sine curves of color, and rafaël rozendaal weaves a proliferation of colored browser windows from programs and websites he codes.
