IAN CLYDE: "RETURN TO ZEBES" DECEMBER 6 - DECEMBER 27, 2019 OPENING RECEPTION: SATURDAY, DECEMBER 7, 5-8 PM
Childhood memories of the images in videogames are often more vibrant than the pixels themselves. Repeated patterns become fields and forests. Simple shapes become complex characters in a story. The glow of a CRT television blurs the hard edges of the pixels to separate these fantasies from our current march towards reality. Ian Clyde makes paintings using points, strokes and planes because these tools are the building blocks of game imagery and of these memories. These three fundamental properties allow me to recapture the past. My paintings are a recollection of these images and stories. Ian Wilson Clyde is an artist and motion graphics designer living in Queens, NY. He paints in oils, acrylics and spray paint.
