Mantle Art Space presents Arcane Wilderness, a solo exhibition by multidisciplinary artist Joe Hedges. Hedges will present works he calls “hypercombines”: oil paintings on wood and canvas that have new media components. Hedges’ art is largely about the tension between the natural world and media technologies. In this show, by presenting hand-painted visions of caves and forests and alongside glowing tablets and laptops, the exhibition provides opportunities for viewers to reflect on the screen-based experience of daily life in the twenty-first century.
Joe Hedges (b. 1980) is currently living in Washington state. He has exhibited painting, digital imaging, installation, music and video in galleries and museums internationally. www.joehedges.com
