Christopher Cichocki Artwork with Dead Fish

Cristopher Cichocki's New Earth Art

The multisensory work of Cristopher Cichocki builds upon survival ecology, developing contrasts and union between ancient and technological elements by constructing a beautiful, anxious and raw electronic wilderness. The madness of unsparing nature and its subjection to industry discloses a confrontation for dominance, where together they perish under the desert's hellish sun and intense salt water sea. Cichocki's inversion of the spectator in this new world order ensues a relationship concocted by painting exotic landscapes with blacklight shrubs, photographing earth across the surface, all the while swimming into other worlds full of colors and fascination.

In a world filled with noise, distractions and chaos, a number of artists seek to push the boundaries of perception and experience. The Light and Space movement of the 1960s explored minimalism with a uniquely Californian spin — with a keen attention to the interaction of light and space. Crucially, the materials these artists relied on to create these perceptual experiences emerged from the postwar aerospace industry and its advances.

CURRENT:LA FOOD

In October of 2019 the city of Los Angeles through the Department of Cultural Affairs and the Institute of Contemporary Art organized a city-wide exhibition of public art and events based around the theme of food. Each artist interpreted a different aspect or issue surrounding food or food systems in the city from climate change, to food access, civic engagement to waste and recycling. Activating public parks throughout the city, artists created works to spark conversation about what it means to live in Los Angeles and how to work together for a sustainable and hopeful future.
