The subjects and media range from beloved icons of the broadcast age to the ever-present glowing boxes themselves, and offer a range of unique viewpoints on peoples relationships with TV. Some of the artwork is actually done on televisions, using the screen as the canvas and then using static as negative space. Some of that imagery is more iconic television imagery, some of it just portrays a love/hatred towards television, Matelski says. If you didnt really want to look at television or you feel that television is not artistic enough, this gives you a different reason to stare at your TV.
Tune in tonight from 6 to 9 p.m. for the closing reception at Kaze Gallery, 3245 Osage Street, including a soundtrack of TV theme songs. For more info, call 303-898-4350 or visit www.artpimponline.com.
