Valerie Green, "IMG7478 (auto-rotate)," 2016, dye sublimation on aluminum, 40 x 30"

Continuing through June 25, 2016

Studio-based digital processes used to create artwork about making art, could, in lesser hands, be the equivalent of artistic navel-gazing. Valerie Green’s “Left to My Own Devices” goes beyond the self-referential and into a world that presents a different dimension, a different universe. Crafted by photographing her own images on a computer, smartphone or tablet, employing the use of a liquid spray cleaner as a prism, Green creates a surreal and colorful landscape. She also re-photographs her original images, slicing, dicing, and dissecting them into multi-dimensional confetti. Some are seen here as hand-punched and self-titled “Perforations,” others are shredded or pinned “Labels.”

Green has been working in this manner for several years. “Originally I used a solid grey computer screen and liquid from lens cleaner that created its own lens on the screen. The image I’m spraying on now is a screen with other images,” the artist relates. She also uses Photoshop editing tools, such as the iconic black and white “marching ants,” as an additional visual layer on some works, although she does not actually use Photoshop to create the works themselves. By translating virtual space from 2D to 3D, Green creates a near-translucent world that reflects the inner color of today’s technology-driven society.
