HONG KONG FUTURE: Hong Kong’s urban nightscape is transformed into a science fictional universe. Mirrored images (identical on both sides) are a recurrent motif in the artist’s work. He is fascinated by urban architecture and the built environment which often forms the core of his work. With digital image making tools he creates works which layer together colours, texture and lines in an unmistakable way that once seen, are hard to shake off. He makes fine art works that unsettle us like chimeras, influencing how we might see the actual city, surrealistically and cinematically, yet very much of this coming century.
“Wide Open Digital 2” brings viewers the excitement of dynamic works across the full digital spectrum. The images here, which range in discipline from classic digital painting and photography to avant-garde algorithmic and glitch art, are nothing short of stunning.
This exhibit is wide-ranging and truly international, with 436 images by 80 artists from 17 countries. The judges selected 3 works to receive a GOLD STELLAR ART AWARD and 33 works to receive a STELLAR ART AWARD. All images in the show demonstrate excellence. It is a competitive show, and having even one image selected for inclusion is an honor.
I want to thank my fellow judges, both of whom are graphics professionals with long, ac-complished careers. As Art Director of Buddah Records, Elektra/Asylum Records, and 20th Century Fox Records, Glen Christensen was, for many years, a major figure in graphic design in the music industry. He has received two nominations for the prestigious Grammy Award, for Best Album Package. Gary Viskupic has, to his credit, an extensive body of work in editorial illustration, most of it rendered during his long tenure as an editorial artist at Newsday in New York. In addition, Gary’s international freelance work has included many award-winning posters and illustrations. He has been recognized many times by such prestigious organizations as the Society of Illustrators, Graphis, The Society for News Design, and Print magazine.

2012 and Beyond: Charting the Future
In response to the theories and superstitions regarding the “End of Days” predictions by Mayan calendars and Nostradamus in 2012, this exhibition looks to the horizon of the new year and those to come. What if the end of the world is simply a new beginning?
2012 and Beyond: Charting the Future focuses on speculations for the future and exploring worlds, technologies & movements we have yet to create. It approaches science fiction through the lens of speculative fiction, observing technology and environments that evolved from dreams into reality.
How would a still life painting portray life in 2012 or 2022? What will our homes look like? Fashion? Animals? How will spacecrafts be designed? Will Aliens live amongst us? Will humans look the same? What about interspecies offspring?
