Swag from Rollin Leonard at Transfer Gallery: “Trunk, Stem and Heads”
TRUNKS, STEMS, & HEADS - a solo exhibition from Rollin Leonard
The Transfer Gallery is an exhibition space dedicated to bring talents from the world of digital online art and into an IRL setting, based in Brooklyn, New York. The latest upcoming show is from artist Rollin Leonard, whose works uniquely explores the transformation and manipulation of the human body creatively within a digital format.
The focus of his first solo exhibition is the human form — organs, limbs and torsos are strewn about, arranged into impossible creatures, disfigured through collision, and installed as highly aestheticized, meticulously polished piles of digitally mutilated forms. The work is shiny and fleshy, and offers a new take on portraiture that captures the shifting perception of the physical self in our contemporary digital moment.
Human faces, bodies, and familiar objects are frequent subjects for the artist. He is interested in our innate ability to recognize the objects despite scrambling or distorting the image. A face, a subject with high visual elasticity, is especially resistant to being obscured or lost in pattern. Just as you see faces in wood grain, clouds, and shadows,
your mind easily knits human form together even when fragmented.
The artist’s photographic practice serves as the basis for this work. After capturing his subjects at precise angles, Leonard manipulates their bodies into highly composed and calculated compositions of looped moving image, digital collage, and plexiglassinstallation pieces.
The show opens on October 12th (this Saturday). You can find out more about the show and the gallery from Transfer’s website here
