Coded Landcapes: Cable Griffith & Sarah Teasdale Opening Thursday, April 9, 2015 6-9pm (Show runs through 5/9/15)

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERACable Griffith and Sarah Teasdale’s paintings use systems of pattern-based image construction to translate the exterior landscape for interior spaces.  References to  8-bit imagery, wallpaper, and hieroglyphics suggest a language that melds both ancient and current codes of representation.

Griffith’s invented world is visually constructed from an accumulation of basic forms – influenced by nature, language, and ecology. His reductive vocabulary parallels fundamental elements in nature, while additionally referencing the pixel and systems of replication.  This process is a way of acknowledging the “datafication” of landscape and our desire to efficiently translate space.

 Teasdale’s pieces explore how technology, math and art can, and do, influence each other. She focuses on patterns derived from both mathematical and digital worlds and tries to highlight the order and beauty found within them. Patterns have an underlying mathematical structure and can be seen as a search for regularities. When we recognize these arrangements we have an emotional reaction that is deeply rooted in our instincts and development. She also believes in color psychology in relation to people’s emotions and temperament. She focuses on using colors that have positive effects and strives to create work that is aesthetically pleasing to the eye.
