Partingtons' Neoplastic Landscapes

Neoplastic Landscapes

Friday, July 2, 2010 from 6:00pm - 9:30pm through July 31st.
The Carreno Studio and Gallery
901 N. Senate Avenue - Indianapolis, IN
Located 1 block South of the Stutz building, in the Sutton Garten Welding Co. with the entrance is in the rear.
Look for the bright green door.
Free parking in the Sutton Garten Parking Lot.

Neoplastic Landscapes is a series of smoke fired ceramic wall reliefs - a collaborative experimental effort by Soyong and Michael Partington in building ultra-thin modern clay structures and then firing them within the extreme heating conditions of the ancient pit firing process.
Pit (or smoke) fired sculpture is created using natural materials such as leaves, twigs, and wood shavings, that are set on fire in a closed container and allowed to smolder for up to 48 hours. The smoke creates variations of organic shapes and colors on the surface.

"Projected Curiosity" - New Brose Art

Brose Partington in Projected CuriosityThis Friday, December 4th join us at our new space in the Murphy Art Center for "Projected Curiosity".
Located at 1043 Virginia Avenue, Indianapolis, IN 46203 from 6-11 p.m. Experience new work by Brose Partington and Jeffrey S. Martin.  

OPENING: Dec. 4 from 6-11pm
1043 Virginia Avenue
Indianapolis, IN
Admission is FREE

A pair of Indianapolis-based artists will be the first featured in iMOCA's at the Temporary Contemporary  in the Murphy Art Center in Fountain Square when their show of installation and sculpture opens Dec. 4

Brose Partington and Jeffrey S. Martin's show, Projected Curiosity, runs through January 16th.

Partington's work focuses on motion and how it effects time, patterns, and the cycles of history. "I have represented my ideas about movement through the use of motors, electronics, and the mechanisms I develop," he said. "Although the creation of the idea and the mechanism are distinctly different processes, if the work is successful, there is an inevitable and natural reconciliation of the two."

Recently, Partington's work has explored the natural world versus mankind's created world. "This work reflects the inherent conflict of space between humans and nature, and it emphasizes how those elements can interact differently," he said. "I want to continue to investigate these ideas and create ways to represent them in urban and natural environments, but instead of using motors and electronics I want to incorporate the existent kinetic energy of objects to power my works."

Michael Partington adds new sounds to Sensory Path

The new sensory path sounds were unveiled at the open house of the Indianapolis Art Center on Friday 9-11-09.
This is the YouTube video of the Nina Mason Pulliam Sensory Path experience.
or view it here:
As you walk through the Art Center's Nina Mason Pulliam Sensory Path, a dozen infrared sensors detect your passing and each trigger a random playback of a sound from a large library of mp3 files stored on a memory card.
Each MP3 sound file in the library is from 15 to 30 seconds long. The result is a completely random composition played for you as you walk through the sensory path.
Usually the path is silent until you walk through it, but if several people are using it while heading in opposing directions, you will experience sounds already in play as you approach, but they are changed quickly to newer sounds as you pass by each infrared sensor.
