Kyle Wolfe Exhibits Digital Works
in the Kortman Gallery
Graphic design, digital technology, and the unusual creative approach by Rockford artist Kyle Wolfe result in intriguing and extraordinarily visual art to be presented in an exhibition in the Kortman Gallery. The exhibit, which opens Friday, March 19th is titled “A Thousand Words” in reference to how the images are created. Wolfe generates his colorful images by hand writing words which become small fragments of the complete picture.
“My work continues to evolve from a process of using words to create visual forms, says Wolfe. “The words applied are representations of my consciousness at the given moment of creation. This ‘hands-on’ approach challenges the limits of digital art.”
Kortman gallerist Doc Slafkosky says seeing the work is the best way to understand the technique. “Hand-created digital art sounds like an oxymoron, but the beautiful, iconic graphic images are literally created by Kyle’s handwriting,” said Slafkosky. “’A Thousand Words’ is such an appropriate title for this show, since seeing the actual art work visually explains the process, more than words can.”
The opening for the Kyle Wolfe exhibit on March 19th is from 5:30pm to 9:00pm in the Kortman Gallery, upstairs at J.R. Kortman Center for Design, 107 North Main Street, Downtown Rockford. Admission is free and open to the public. The opening is in conjunction with “It’s Our Time,” a group exhibiton at North Main Sudios, 2500 North Main Street.
