Superradiant 2012 Block Projects
Just what is a visual artist supposed to do in a new world of bits and bytes, a world of information overload and pixelated pulsations?
Embrace it, of course.
That is most certainly the position taken by Janenne Eaton in her riveting, explosive new show at Block Projects; a show that swallows information overload whole and throws it back to the viewer in works that fluctuate from the boldly beautiful to the outrageously garish, from the borderline literal in You have to make your own fun she playfully embraces the visual language of PAC-MAN, one of the earliest computer games to the downright apocalyptic, in C23w, falls bright orange enamel paint pours across the canvas like some kind of Biblical torrent of fire via the molten silicon lava of overheated technology.
