We live in the age of "big data." Through the reach of the internet, researchers in almost every field can now analyze thousands, even millions, of discrete bits of information, uncovering patterns and significance that smaller data sets could never reveal. Like "big data" researchers, the artists in our show make discoveries that are only possible through the aggregation of multiple small bits of information. Whether drawn or painted, stitched or torn, stamped or struck with a typewriter key, these works' patterns and imagery emerge from the process itself, a painstaking accumulation of tiny repeated marks.
Participating artist are: Emily Barletta, Janice Caswell, Clint Fulkerson, Colleen Ho, Sarah Morejohn, Sharyn O'Mara, Paula Overbay, Jessica Rosner, Mia Rosenthal, Karen Schiff, Drew Shiflett, Allyson Strafella and Robert Walden.
