Opening Reception: Thursday September 5th, 5:30-7:30pm
Sandra Lee Gallery proudly announces a group show featuring revolutionary 2D to 3D artworks by artists David Mark, Jeffrey Palladini and new artist to Sandra Lee Gallery; Peter J. Sucy. In this innovative exhibition, we experience the future of image making and visual story telling. Mark, Palladini, and Sucy attempt to explore techniques and subjects that have yet to be fully investigated. Using 3D construction, lighting, and digital methods seldom seen before, Mark, Palladini, and Sucy create astonishing images that transform into three dimensional artworks without the use of any ocular assistance. Using techniques such as digital photography and video, fluorescence, 3D modeling, and transparencies, these artists challenge the barriers and existing definitions of both the 2D and 3D art world.
David Mark investigates the scientific mystery that is the origin of life through the examination and inspection of minerals. Photographing fluorescent minerals in three dimensions using a stereoscopic camera, he reveals a geologic record of the mineral’s history. A 3D visualization of each mineral’s fossilized microbial life is spectacularly uncovered and exposed in the round. Peter J. Sucy is a digital photographer that has stretched the limits of his medium by using 3D models and sketches transformed into entire scenes. He creates a sequence of images from minute movements of his camera, allowing one to see the scene in three dimensions. The final images are 3D Lenticular Duratran transparencies being backlit and illuminated. Jeffrey Palladini is a fine art painter who has expanded his medium to include digital movement. He paints his subjects directly onto a flat screen monitor which displays a moving video recording. This exploration of the duality between stillness and motion draws the viewer in and creates a three dimensional setting in which the viewer themselves are within. He constructs an interplay between the passive and active through the combination of these cool and hot media.
