Closing Reception: Monday, March 12 from 7pm to 9pm

Dupont Underground presents the closing reception for Tim McLoraine’s solo exhibition of video work.

From the artist:
The stories being told in Hindsight contain a density that, through their archetypal vocabulary, aim to construct a bridge to meet the viewer in their own personal history. Emotionality and revelation are important in both the content and the structure of these pieces. Themes of pilgrimage, connection and isolation, and discovery appear at times meditative, stark, or humorous. This body of work is constructed mainly from the material of appropriated and ‘poor’ images taken from sources that range from old home movies to pop culture iconography. Through layered video and over-saturated colors, the pieces in this show have a richness and depth both visually and in their implied narratives.

Artist Bio:
Tim McLoraine creates video art for live performance and installations. Notable productions include Cunning Little Vixen at Lincoln Center, Orphic Moments at National Sawdust, The Body of an American at Theater J, and Kurt Weill’s Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny at the Tanglewood Music Center. His concert-based video works include Bartok’s Miraculous Mandarin with the Columbus Symphony, Stravinsky’s Persephone for the American Symphony Orchestra, and a collaboration with the Capital City Symphony for the Atlas Theatre’s Intersections Festival.

His experimental films have been chosen for video and public art festivals, and his installations have appeared in solo and group exhibition. His work explores the density of digital information, the complexity of personal narrative, and their intersection. Layering both video and narrative, Tim endeavors to paint with the medium of the pixel.
