The team of Dave Miko &a mp\; Tom Thayer debuted their hybrid process at The Kitchen in 2011\, title d New World Pig. Their practice consists of collaboratively worked animatio ns that are projected onto paintings on aluminum.  Both artists also mainta in respective solo careers - Miko was featured in Greater New York at MoMA PS1 in 2010 and Thayer was included in the 2012 Whitney Biennial. This new series presents a progression of their work towards more ambitious scale an d pictorially experimental territory.

Using mutually cull ed imagery as a point of departure\, Dave Miko &\; Tom Thayer develop th eir work through an ongoing visual dialogue. Motifs from Thayer’s heavily p rocessed\, vivid animations carry over onto—and sometimes derive from—the s urfaces of Miko’s mixed media paintings. Their newest work revolves around the movement of various beings through physical space\, oscillating between the external appearance of objects and an internal visual cogitation. Port al imagery (windows\, doors\, frames) fuse with faces and masks\, architect ure and nature as the figure travels from one type of space to the next. Th ey use a breadth of painting materials aimed at blurring the boundary betwe en projected and painted image. The colored light of the projected animatio n reacts differently to each specific surface\, be it oil\, chalk\, enamel\ , fluorescent colors\, spray paint\, or raw metal. The works are conceived and developed over months through a back-and-forth dialogue about changes i n narrative structure and tone\, fine-tuning the relationship between Miko’ s unorthodox painting style and Thayer’s use of analog video effects. The r esult is a beautifully tenuous installation\; an expansive and experimental incarnation of painting that unifies two seemingly exclusive media.
