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

Using mutua lly culled imagery as a point of departure\, Dave Miko &\; Tom Thayer de velop their work through an ongoing visual dialogue. Motifs from Thayer’s h eavily processed\, vivid animations carry over onto—and sometimes derive fr om—the surfaces 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 cogitati on. Portal imagery (windows\, doors\, frames) fuse with faces and masks\, a rchitecture and nature as the figure travels from one type of space to the next. They use a breadth of painting materials aimed at blurring the bounda ry between projected and painted image. The colored light of the projected animation reacts differently to each specific surface\, be it oil\, chalk\, enamel\, fluorescent colors\, spray paint\, or raw metal. The works are co nceived and developed over months through a back-and-forth dialogue about c hanges in narrative structure and tone\, fine-tuning the relationship betwe en Miko’s unorthodox painting style and Thayer’s use of analog video effect s. The result is a beautifully tenuous installation\; an expansive and expe rimental incarnation of painting that unifies two seemingly exclusive media .
