Studio Beat strives to represent artists in all disciplines. However, many artists work in a “post-studio” condition that doesn’t always translate to our usual Studio Visits. This includes many photographers, performance artists and those working in digital media. We’re excited to announce Studio Beat’s Digital Residency that allows artists to explore the use of immaterial space on our website.
Conventionally, an artist residency provides a space for artists to create work and exhibit. For the Studio Beat Digital Residency, the featured artist will be provided with a space on our website for four weeks to use as a creative space and exhibition venue. Any media or approach that can be presented in this format is acceptable. Within the parameters of the website’s design, we permit the artist free range of the work they would like to present including the video, photography, animation, sound, flash, text, etc.
The Residency’s first featured artist is Lauren Pelc-McArthur. She’s a Toronto-based painter and digital artist. Her work explores the relationship between screen-based imagery and painterly process. She creates her images by mixing oil and acrylic paints with Cinema 4D and Photoshop.
