Artist Statement & Biography


Artist Statement

Twinning, a new immersive site-specific installation by John Richey brings together a collection of hand-drawn video animations and cyanotype prints produced using themes and images borrowed from various personal collections. Each work seeks to allow elements of chance and flexibility into a labor-intensive process that grapples with the transformative nature of information. By working back-and-forth between, and with different combinations of hand-made and digitally rendered elements, this new installation investigates the physical or conceptual glitches that occur in the spaces between the analogue and the digital. Each performance-based animation depicts a luminous grid pattern infinitely floating and falling into a limitless void. They, along with the vivid blue cyanotype works, speak to formal principles of line and pattern while at the same time addressing themes of light, space, and movement.
