Into The Pixel

January 03, 2008

As 35-millimeter film cameras go the way of the eight-track and VCR, digital images are becoming the status quo of modern-day photography. The new show "Bitten!" at Kim Light/LightBox Gallery in Los Angeles explores the influence of digital culture on a formerly analog world. Using the pixel as a point of departure, "Bitten!" includes paintings, photographs and videos from 10 emerging L.A. artists. Examples include Kathy Grayson's oil painting "Monster Bait" (pictured), which alters an old family photograph to appear pixelated, and Case Simmons and Andrew Burke's LightJet print "Temple 7," which incorporates thousands of Internet-trolled photographs into a mandala-like collage. "The show is all about the dialogue of digital language on art," says curator Stefan Simchowitz. "It represents a movement from the digital to analog universe." Ends Jan. 26, (310) 559-1111, www.kimlightgallery.com
