Glen Kessler - circuitscape 15: midnight in the valley
 
Featured Artist
Glen Kessler

Glen Kessler paints images that initially appear to be atmospheric urban and industrial landscapes, but are in truth manipulated views of computer circuit boards.  In his CircuitScape series, the analogous nature of these two worlds is formally and conceptually explored.  The physical similarities between city design and circuitry are obvious, each exerting a bias towards efficient geometric utility.  At ‘street level,’ however, the similarities become uncanny, as the mechanisms that increasingly drive our culture appear to resemble the urban and industrial areas that they maintain. Kessler plays with clarity and obfuscation as he permits us to teeter on the edge of certainty/confusion, filling in our own sense of place as we explore these bizarrely familiar worlds.  Kessler’s work examines the larger paradigm shift from analog to digital that began in the late 1970s with the personal computer and continues its exponential expansion into all facets of daily life today. Issues of familiarity and memory, fatalism and optimism, pace of life and depth of meaning are explored as well.  By blurring the lines between the two parallel worlds, the work of Glen Kessler asks us to consider our own relationships to both.
