Gorczynski will present new videos and paintings that investigate the overlap of virtual and actual states of being. Layering textiles, art tools, painted gestures, and images of such, Gorczynski builds uncanny compositions that slip in and out of digital and actual realms.
Zhulong Gallery is pleased to announce Alexandra Gorczynski: Quantum Objects, a solo exhibition opening on May 17, 2014. Gorczynski will present new two-dimensional, sculptural and video works that investigate the overlap of virtual and actual states of being. Layering together paint, photographs, and moving images, Gorczynski celebrates the formal potential of new media. She also explores the fluidity of identity, the sensuous and corporeal limitations of the virtual and the real, and more recently, a modernist approach to materials, color and form.
Layering textiles, art tools, painted gestures, and images of such, Gorczynski builds uncanny compositions allowing the audience to slip in and out of digital and actual realms. Gorczynski’s work is akin to the processes of quantum movement, just recently discovered by physicist Aaron O’Connell. With a sort of out here and in there quality, her work simulates a state of movement and stasis at once. The craft components and marginal inclusions of the artist and her home occupy our world and alternate worlds tugging at our understanding of objects and reality.
Gorczynski, an internationally recognized artist, is a graduate of Rhode Island School of Design (2006). At Paddles On!, an online exhibition and auction presented by Philips + Tumblr, she ranked among the top sellers, suggesting the strength of her practice and the medium. Gorczynski has of cult following that spans overlapping online communities such as fashion, design and contemporary art. Among recent accomplishments, Gorczynski has just concluded a successful residency at the Quartier21 in Vienna, as well as various exhibitions in New York and the UK.
