ODETTA Portal “Coba”

About

The “ODETTA Portals” is a series created specifically for ODETTA to be viewed from the vantage point of their flat files in which a drawer opened suggests a deeper hidden space, a visual depth that is essentially a portal to another dimensional reality. Named individually after geographical locations around the world that are known energy points, these works are meant to conjure a sense of wormhole connectivity, or quantum entanglement. Part of a series that I refer to as “Reproductions of Paintings that Do Not Exist”, the “ODETTA Portals” exist in their own right as reproductions of degraded digital files that are derived from lo resolution reproductions of actual paintings that when enlarged break down into a rather painterly effect that reveals the actual information architecture of the digital file. The images are real paintings and at the same time are reproductions of that which exists in another physical form in another space, creating a dialogue of form and representation, an aesthetic quantum entanglement that exists in two dimensions at the same time. These particular works were based upon the work of the Chinese painter Wang Guangle making these portals a metaphorical doorway to China. Kevin Ryan received his MFA in painting from the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA). He is the recipient of a Ford Foundation Fellowship and a Foundation for Contemporary Art grant relating to his curatorial project “SENSORIUM” for the Issue Project Room. While being trained as a painter he has supported himself since moving to NYC in 1982 as a photographer working with clients that include the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation and the Andy Warhol Foundation. He has exhibited his work internationally, notably in the traveling exhibition “Beyond Photography” curated by Charlotta Kotik. He lives and works in Brooklyn. Kevin Ryan is a photographer/painter whose work crosses boundaries of imaging practices, engaging digital techniques for reproduction that reveals the information architecture in a simulated reality of the digital space. His concerns are related to light as information, consciousness as a digital construct, and reality as holographic field.
