Through sculpture and highly detailed large-scale drawings, Steven Barich depicts visual patterns, codes and text born of our contemporary digital age, and set within and among forms appreciated for their naturalistic authenticity, their spiritual references or aesthetic purity. Ranging from abstraction to anonymous silhouettes, drawings often depict pixel-mosaic-filled stone forms on paper. In addition the wall sculpture incorporates geometric patterns, symbols and coded writing from both analog or virtual sources.
Exhibition at Branch Gallery, May 6 – July 2, 2011.
