Two artists spawned by the 80’s\, artists Derric Eady and Steve Childs explore their unique visions of photography and video this Summer at Concrete Walls .\n\nDerric Eady will have on display digital prints\, and a computer gener ating real time video via video game engines and 3D modeling programs. Eady ’s work influenced by today’s gaming cult culture mines the vast and rich t erritory of virtual environments and their transitory nature. The work is a meditation on detachment\, spiritual transformation\, and the search for t ranscendent beauty.\n\nSteve Childs’s digital prints of mundane objects are mysterious\, yielding the power of light and abstracting the literal. Thro ugh the use of decade old Polaroid processes Childs is able to create visua l eye candy by mystifying images of objects in his daily life. Using a deem ed technologically outdated mode of photography and images of the everyday\ , Childs presents a mystery that can only be interpreted though the imagina tion of the viewer.\n\n\nDerric Eady received his MFA from the University o f California\, Irvine in 2005 and BFA in both Photo / New Media & Art Histo ry in 2002 from Kansas City Art Institute. He has shown at Lowe Gallery in Los Angeles\, The Armory Center of the Arts in Pasadena and the Office in H untington Beach\, CA.\n\n\nSteve Childs lives and works in Los Angeles and has shown his work at I-5 Gallery\, Compact/Space\, and the Huntington Beac h Museum of Art. He received his MFA from Claremont Graduate University in 2005 and his BFA from Biola University in 1998.\n\n DTEND:20060804 DTSTAMP:20141030T184719 DTSTART:20060708 GEO:34.0536667;-118.4576191 LOCATION:Concrete Walls Gallery\,5484 Wilshire Blvd. (rear) \nLos Angeles\, CA 90036 SEQUENCE:0 SUMMARY:Gentlemen Take Polaroids & Play Video Games\, Steve Childs\, Derric Eady UID:15 END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTEND:20060708T200000 DTSTAMP:20141030T184719 DTSTART:20060708T170000 GEO:34.0536667;-118.4576191 LOCATION:Concrete Walls Gallery\,5484 Wilshire Blvd. (rear) \nLos Angeles\, CA 90036 SEQUENCE:0 SUMMARY:Gentlemen Take Polaroids & Play Video Games\, Steve Childs\, Derric Eady UID:16 END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
