Russell Tyler: Analogue Future

Image coming soon.

Thomas Micchelli reviews the exhibition Russell Tyler: Analogue Future at DCKT Contemporary, New York, on view through January 26, 2013.

Micchelli writes: "The thickly painted, brightly buzzing circles, rectangles and trapezoids in Analogue Future — which includes conventionally rectilinear canvases as well as several tondos — derive from the 8-bit graphics of primitive computer programs and video games… While the works in this show, at first glance, come off as paint-as-paint, the longer you look at them, the more their evocation of memory and lost time deepens their impression, even if you are unaware of their origins. I would even go so far as to say that their origins serve to validate their repetitive elements, since one of the primary pleasures of play is in its repetition: starting anew, following the rules, reaching a foreseeable conclusion."
