DESCRIPTION

Ping Pong Gallery is pleased to announce its first solo exhibition with Deric Carner.

Deric Carner uses drawing and graphic forms as a way of navigating  and relating to the world. He
is a collector and manipulator of signs  and messages, incorporating visual and textual fragments
into an  overcoded vocabulary. They are taken from a globalized environment and mindset that is
so loaded with signs and references, that meaning is constantly disintegrating or reforming around
deracinated forms.

On view at Ping Pong Gallery are a series of hand-painted graphic  posters which take an uncanny
pleasure in naming and associating. Odd  objects are paired with headline references to fictional and
real locales, movements and people. These elliptical markers invite  viewers to enter a territory of
ouble, negated and hidden meaning.  This work emerges from a perspective of rational skepticism;
yet moves beyond towards the paradoxical freedom and tensions of semiotic vertigo.
