Artist Art Venti likes to experiment with shadow, light and depth in an environment that starts with a forest of tissues in a light box. The view in this box of translucent paper suggests landscape scenes that seem to move and change as the sun crosses the sky. If the inferred panorama is beguiling enough, the mind will move from the seen to the unseen and finally to what can only be a dream. Sketches of these moments are assembled and used as an elementary scaffold to begin what becomes elaborately constructed worlds drawn in color pencil. When they are complete, the observer will have an opportunity to travel through random meaning to find his own personal significance.

Mark Chadwick (UK) - Abstract Fluid Painting. Acrylic on canvas
The British artist Mark Chadwick’s art practice is concerned by the use of machines in the production of an artwork. With our culture becoming more and more engaged with new technologies, Mark’s work questions the implications of handing over control of an artwork to a mechanical device. Through experimentation with using a number of crude technological devices and minimising his interaction with the decision making process. Mark’s work investigates the status of the artist and what the artwork actually is. With the actions of any machine the result of human intention, Mark uses machines to allow chance to enter the creative process, exploring ideas surrounding authorship, consciousness and interaction.
