About This Event

Join us for our September Gallery Show with traveling artists Andrew Somoskey of Walla Walla, WA.

Artist Statement:
The activity of encoding and decoding information is central to our contemporary existence and my artistic practice. While the systems I reference within my process center around textual and symbolic language, they also refer to the history of abstraction and the disruptions, complexities, and migrations of meaning that occur when languages and systems interface. Specific texts, graphs, and symbols are used in conjunction with personal notational systems including the idiosyncratic strategies I developed to mitigate my dyslexia and dysgraphia. My ever-growing vocabulary of forms and open process often blur the line between process and product. While acknowledging my complicity in this constant process of encoding and decoding, I question the fixedness of language, while simultaneously making more visible the role language and similar systems have in shaping our conception of the world.
