Collection of 5 Artworks. Sold as ERC-20. Mintable. Edition of 5
Originally trained as a painter, American artist Jakob LeBaron Dwight was drawn to digital software as an opportunity to explore the transformative impact of digital media on painting and the painterly perspective. Inspired by the opiated, meditative quality of the screen-based televisual space, Dwight saw the illuminated image as significant to contemporary sensory culture. With his abstracted images the artist seeks the transformative potential of light and space by employing multiple media including painting, digital photography and collage, drawing and generative, algorithmic processes.
Jakob LeBaron Dwight’s work has been exhibited internationally, including in Amsterdam, Los Angeles, Berlin, Atlanta, Vienna, and New York. He was commissioned by the Seattle Art Museum to create new work for the Disguise: Masks and Global African Art exhibition at UCLA’s Fowler Museum, which travelled to the Brooklyn Museum, New York in April 2016.
In 2014 as part of the collective Aestherics and Therapeutics Lab formed to explore new ways of providing healing experiences through art, Dwight, himself an adult survivor of a noncancerous childhood brain tumor, installed a MultiSensory Environment (MSE) in fulldome at Vortex Immersion Media at LA Center Studios.
