Projects & insights from our community of artists at Tinney Contemporary.

Margery Amdur, a Tinney Contemporary artist:

“all people still desire to touch and be touched in very palpable ways,” however, the overwhelming majority of touching is through technology, that realm between the paradises of pristine nature and pixelated information.”

Have artists found a way to navigate the pixelated quagmire, (a.k.a. technology)? Is the “T-word” so much a expletive, or is it our newest sense, the keys to touching the human spirit?

In her newest exhibit, “Six Places in Motion” Margery Amdur embraces the pixelated wasteland and turns it into an undiscovered dimension of art, one which bridges our firmest differences, namely because it strikes at technology’s capacity: to speak in a language that can be fluent to all. After all, how markedly different are these pixelations from Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man, or the Renaissance-era focus on symmetry, new dimensions, and a pervasive sense of harmony?
