Caffe Galleria is pleased to announce their latest art installation , "A Different Look", opened Tuesday, September 12, 2017. Reflecting Caffe Galleria's commitment to combine fine dining and local art, "A Different Look" features glitch art by Trenton artist, Phillip McConnell.
Phillip McConnell is a 25 year old Glitch Artist from Trenton, NJ. According to Phillip, glitch art is the aestheticization of digital or analog errors, such as artifacts and other "bugs", by either corrupting digital code/data or by physically manipulating electronic devices. As a sort of digital alchemy he blends aspects of photography and graphic design with data bending. By bending and manipulating the raw data of a picture, he essentially corrupts the original picture creating something new and destroying what was.
Speaking about his work, Phillip McConnell said, "This show will contain different aspects of glitch art shown through the scope of celebrating contemporary digital art told through the eyes of a post internet millennial. By highlighting everyday normal (normal being a relative term) things and people I want to show there is color in everything. Everything has a life to it, my goal is to highlight the existing life and give people a different way of viewing the world around them. As a Glitch Artist I view the world as layers and colors that don’t normally exist in or around these objects."
"A Different Look" will run until November 7, 2017.
Caffe Galleria rotates art from local artists, with shows curated by Jane Wesby and Edward Dumchus, formerly of River Queen Artisans Gallery, Lambertville.
