Tim Portlock: Digital Cityscapes

Posted in News

The Spagnuolo Art Gallery is proud to present an exhibition of new work by digital artist Tim Portlock, on view from September 9 – October 11, 2015. There will be an opening reception and Artist’s Talk from 5:00 – 7:00 pm on Thursday, September 10.

Portlock’s current work combines special-effects software, 3D gaming technology, and the visual conventions of 19th-century American image making to simulate decaying cityscapes. The large-format images in this exhibition are inspired by the city of San Bernardino, California, which recently filed for bankruptcy.

Portlock is currently an Associate Professor in the Film and Media Department at Hunter College, CUNY where he teaches courses in emerging media. He has exhibited internationally in venues such as the Ars Electronica Center in Linz, Austria; the International Symposium on Electronic Art in Nagoya, Japan; and the Tate Modern in London, England.
