A solo exhibition featuring work by John Pomara.
From the gallery:
“Barry Whistler Gallery is pleased to present John Pomara’s newest body of work, Digital_debris. The exhibition runs October 14 th – November 21 st . The gallery is currently open by appointment only.
Digital_debris will feature a collection of new oil enamel paintings on aluminum, as well as, unique UV pigment ink on canvas pieces. As the artist explains the title of the show, “Is very descriptive of the moment historically, but actually how the work is created. So it has a double meaning for me.”
“For the past two decades my work and research has been influenced by media culture and computer technology. The proliferation of pictures bombards us daily at a speeding rate. Advances in technology have led to an ever-increasing access to digital imaging, creating a major cultural shift in altering the way we see, think, and feel.”
In addition to his oil enamel paintings, the show will include a vinyl site specific 34 foot mural installation in the foyer of the gallery, viewable from both inside and outside the gallery. Pomara (b. 1952) is currently a professor at the University of Texas at Dallas. His work is in the permanent collections at the Dallas Museum of Art and The Museum of Fine Arts Houston as well as numerous other public and private collections.
He lives and works in Dallas and received his MFA from East Texas State University in 1980. In 1979 the artist studied at Empire State University in New Work, New York. He received his BFA at East Texas State University the previous year.
Barry Whistler Gallery has represented Pomara since 1998.”
