While spending the afternoon in Soho, I decided to pop into the Hole NYC. The gallery is known for contemporary art and shining the light on young emerging artists with thematic group shows. I was able to catch their latest exhibit, Post Analog Painting II, before its closing. The show explored the complex shift in culture from analog to digital media, and its significance to our generation. The pieces shown inspired me to not be afraid to incorporate digital elements to my own paintings, merging the 2 worlds together.
I would tell you to stop by and check it out, but the exhibit is closed. Instead I urge you to check some of the pieces below and explore even deeper here.
