CHEVALIER CLARK FINE ARTS
Padrick works dually in oils and .GIFs, utilizing a process-oriented approach to address themes of consumerism and homogenization. His objective is to deconstruct established views, taking a critical look at the determination and manipulation of identity and absurdity of the system. The process involves either creating art or manipulating an image, then taking the image file and categorically corrupting the more lines of code in a series of progressively altered versions of the original image. There is a both primal and modern element to deconstructing an image through the manipulation of the code. It's then tied back together in an animated .GIF. With small delays, the work can be jarring and it can be difficult to discern individual images, allowing it to be subliminally absorbed, mimicking our daily intake of information.
