Bill Claps
It's All Derivative: Jackie O Light

About

My work has traditionally been characterized by immediacy and gesture, executed combining elements of both painting and drawing, and I typically have tapped into the instinctual and subconscious to create spontaneous works of art. Recently I have been working more conceptually and narratively, utilizing photos and prints of my drawings in my works, and relying on text and symbolic representation to present my ideas. My most recent works utilize Morse code to communicate various ideas and thoughts. In an age where all of our art and communication can be reduced to and stored in a binary language, the fact that Morse code was one of the earliest forms of digital code and the first universal language of the digital age resonates strongly with me. There’s beauty in the simplicity of the simple dots and dashes of this outdated language, but layers of meaning and relevance can be conveyed using its symbolic lexicon. The works in the “It’s All Derivative” series comment on the practice of appropriation in the art world, the use of borrowed elements and visual language from the past that are incorporated into an artist’s vision. These works also raise questions about the role of digital technology in the production of works of art, and the relevance of the artist’s hand in the process. Bill Claps
