The title of Rosamond Casey’s new exhibition, Tablet & Cloud: Pilgrims in Cyberspace, alludes not only to our Internet Age, but also to deep time and a mysterious future. The nose-to- canvas slowness of painting was just the right medium to embalm this techno-miracle that has flown by us, better to study the pallor and glow of faces fastened to screens. Some of the paintings are horizontally trisected into triple-decker universes: the primeval understory of the desk with its tangle of snakewires, the earthbound affairs of the desk’s surface, and that other high place of the imagination that we sometimes call the Cloud, or the rising tip of the Singularity, or that supernal place we cannot fathom. Rosamond Casey will lead a gallery discussion, “Our Lives in the Computer Age”, on Wednesday, October 12th, 12:30PM, in the Sarah B. Smith Gallery.read more
