PRESS RELEASE

Press preview in presence of the artist : Tuesday, 29 January, 5 PM

Annka Kultys Gallery is pleased to present the exhibition FINAL_007 (02) of seven digital paintings and a video by the German-born artist Aaron Scheer. This exhibition will mark the artist’s first solo presentation in the United Kingdom.

Created on a variety of digital devices, Scheer’s works utilise the digital realm to combine elements of collage, photography and painterly technique to expand what painting can be and mean today.  The artist’s process involves using free form digital gestures, keyboard commands and touchscreen swipes to develop his works, which once complete may be read as an abstracted version of contemporary digital activities, full of vibrant and vivid colour palettes, redolent with distortions, static and blips that contrast with subtle gradations of luminous colour saturations.  Through his art, Scheer questions the idea of the human in technology and the technological in the human, thereby allowing him to explore the challenges that an increasingly digitised world presents, such as virtual matter, perceptions of the real, automated production, big data, technocracy and contemporary working cults.
