Hidden in Plain Sight

Baxter St is pleased to present a solo exhibition by artist and 2014 Workspace Resident, Patricia Voulgaris. In her series “Hidden in Plain Sight,” Voulgaris creates studio constructions with common objects that interact with the human form. These carefully layered constructions are transformed in Photoshop using specific digital tools that mimic postproduction manipulations. Through her playful usage of space, she creates graphical photographs that are obscured and often abstracted. They are intricately composed images that create a glitch between the tangible and the fabricated. She further explores this concept by mimicking the artist’s ability to draw simple forms and lines on paper. These forms and lines are then translated into a digital space by Voulgaris through the usage of popular Photoshop tools such as the brush, pencil and magic wand. The viewer is left with remnants of a language that has been manipulated and reinvented by the artist herself.
