Opening Wednesday 8 November, 6.30-8pm
Continuing his exploration of the machine as part of the creative process, TJ Bateson looks to questioning how a narrative about reliance upon machines be explored through the construction of nostalgic objects.
Attracted by the qualities celebrated in Hyperrealism - and the painters Chuck Close and Jason de Graaf in particular, who move not only beyond the aesthetic of the photographic image but beyond the reality of the object represented - and his love of digital innovation, TJ Bateson explores heightened realism. In drawing images digitally, the objects could be rendered to a heightened level of realism beyond the realm of a camera or by sight. Mathematically correct, objects are clearer and 'shinier' than in reality, drawing connections between reinterpreted objects, personal narratives and machine-like aesthetics.
