Fallout - Art in This Time
A cumulative, online exhibition featuring the work and practices of emerging and established artists
I am honored to have been included in Grunwald Gallery’s online exhibition – Fallout – A project aimed at reflecting how the participating artists’ lives and work have shifted since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. I am brutally honest in admitting my daily life hasn’t been much affected.
I was already working from home. I am not subject to the hardships facing so many. It is a strange reminder of the privilege I enjoy and often accompanied by a nervous guilt. How is it fair that I escaped the fallout?
How has the pandemic affected my work?
Only coincident to the pandemic, I am spending less time outside gathering images and more time in my studio working on digital manipulations to source imagery already on my hard drive. I am attempting to extend the life of a project originally intended to be viewed once and appreciated for its own sake. The work being done now extracts the data from these photographs to make them useful as seamless PBR (physically-based render) materials within 3D modeling software. And that is the focus of this submission.

The Grunwald Gallery of Art is home to contemporary works by both professional and student artists. Exhibits incorporate art from a variety of contemporary genres and approaches, and can be experimental or traditional.
