Monochromatic presents two new 3D animations by artist Andrew Elijah Edwards. Based on a deep fascination with vision and looking, Edwards utilizes the transmutation of light through digital media in his animations. He creates work that explores the moving image as a medium for experimentation within a perceptual landscape of direct experience that lives on the outskirts of linguistic expression and a metaphysical power channeled through the imagination. His processes develop in fascination with the horizons of consciousness and new imaginal realms facilitated by our relationship to emerging digital media. There is a ‘language’ in the mind capable of communicating with the world in a space beyond language and his work inhabits and navigates this place.
Andrew Elijah Edwards received his MFA in Emergent Digital Practices from the University of Denver in 2014 and has been exhibiting work throughout the country from Santa Fe to Maine. He works at Spindleworks, a non profit art center in Brunswick Maine for adults with developmental disabilities where he brings a fascination with the electronic landscape to facilitating an environment for animation, video, performance, and immersive installation.
SCREEN is an ongoing CMCA series featuring current video work by artists with a connection to Maine.
