None of The Above

Artist: Derik Carner
Gallery: Ping Pong Gallery
Exhibition Dates: February 26th - March 26th
Opening Reception: Friday, February 26TH, 6:00 - 9:00PM

Deric's work:
intellectually challenging
typographically pleasing
a marriage of text and imagery
clean yet raw

"The "options" on offer in NONE OF THE ABOVE refer to ideas, places, movements and people that are abstracted from their quotidian, medial context. Their forms now function as obliquely suggestive carriers for a message whose intention and origin invite inquiry. The viewer is left to navigate these resonant subjects and specters, constructing the missing ground from an array of over-coded stylings. This journey through a graveyard of derelict ideas arrives at a more considered perspective, proposing narratives with an anti-hierarchical and speculative outlook."
