The Depthcore Collective is proud to release it's 43rd themed chapter exhibition, "TIME"
. As we near our 10th anniversary, this seems to be an appropriate subject for us as a collective to reflect upon. Ten years have passed by, and the students and teenagers who once populated the group are gone, replaced by full time freelance artists, independent small-business owners and focussed creative professionals. Finding the time (oh, the puns are endless with this theme) to create these Chapters has become increasingly difficult.
And yet, here we are, with one of our largest collections in the past few years. It certainly came together slowly - after the excitement of our presentation at OFFF
and our first exhibition here in New York City
the come down from the highs of travelling and showing to the reality of starting over to create a new Chapter was brutal. Pieces drizzled in over the first few months, and for a little while it seemed like this theme would get the better of us. Then, all of a sudden, art started pouring in. Not just art, but really good art; put your headphones in and stay up until 1 in the morning because you're excited by what you've seen good art. All of a sudden, the collective is buzzing with guys and girls talking about how this might turn out to be something special. More than eighty pieces later, we're tremendously excited but what we're putting on show today.
Our featured artist for this Chapter is Vesna Pesic
, a very recent addition to the collective. Her work, with it's unique aesthetic and collage based approach adds a wonderful new depth to our collective aesthetic and provided a couple of the keys sparks in our creative process. This Chapter also sees us welcome several new members, including artists Pavel Sabelnikov
, Benjamin Mounsey
, Pat Perry
, Abo and Ooli from Orka Collective
and musician Falinox
. We're very excited by what these unique talents bring to the table - browse "TIME"
to pick out their debut pieces!
We hope you enjoy this latest Chapter of our work, and look forward to sharing more content including workshops, wallpapers and more with you over the coming weeks. Thanks for your ongoing support - we'll be back with our 44th Chapter and a few more surprises next year. Happy Holidays to all!Justin Maller
