Winston Wachter Fine Art is excited to announce Digital Perspectives, an exhibition of digital works by Maja Petric, Etsuko Ichikawa and Peter Gronquist. Each of these artists embraces the digital medium as a way to reflect on our relationship to the natural world. Each invites the audience to join the conversation in these imagined realms, through AI interactive experiences, narrative, futuristic, social commentary and looping, meditative desert landscapes. All three artists ask us to take pause and consider the world we share.
Etsuko Ichikawa continues her conversation about nuclear waste, what we chose to leave behind and how we differ from previous cultures with concern to future generations. Murmurings of Love depicts a futuristic heroine smashing an ancient vessel created out of uranium glass, a byproduct of nuclear energy. The figure wears protective clothing and is masked, while almost carelessly smashing the toxic vessel she presents. This is reflection not only on our relationship with nature, but also the thoughtlessness in which today’s world considers our global impact.
