Opening Reception: Saturday July 12, 2014 7-10PM
Exhibition Dates: July 12 - July 24 2014
Slow Culture is proud to present “Serene Dreams.” An installation of new works from visual artist Anthony Samaniego. A experimental exhibition combining the artist’s latest works across still photography, .gif’s, and short films. Heavily influenced by a love of music and film, this economics graduate turned artist has crafted a strikingly personal narrative of his Los Angeles hometown. Primarily working with 35mm and medium format film, the artist is able to manually control his manipulation firsthand.
“I love the aesthetic of film and its complications. There’s this challenge and uncertainty in the process that I find fascinating. A method of experimentation that is always present. I see myself as a scientist at time; taking notes, checking results, cursing, etc. Trial and error. I’m self taught and that’s how I learned. It’s much more than pointing some device and pushing a button.”
As an artist intrigued with all aspects of the living, breathing city, it was not enough to solely work with still images. Combining techniques within his analog photography and digital manipulation, Anthony has forged a path as a highly innovative “.gif” artist as well. Working across similar themes, the artist has taken his imagery and brought it to life.
On view will be a combination of framed works, live projections and a few surprises. This will also be the first time the artist has offered any editions of work for sale. In conjunction, we will be selling an exclusive print available only online. Slow Culture is honored to present the gallery debut for this bright and talented artist.
