“Inside” - Exhibition of Digital Painting by Pamela Cento - On Display at NYU’s Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò, Jan. 25-Feb. 20

January 18, 2008
N-234, 2007-08

An exhibition of digital painting by Pamela Cento entitled “Inside” will open on Friday, January 25, at 6 p.m., at New York University’s Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò, 24 W. 12th Street. “Inside,” which features the artist’s latest digital-pictorial creations, with such works as “EoF - Evidence of Form” as well as video-paintings entitled “e-Composition” and “Cento 2.0,” will be on display through February 20. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For further information, call 212.998.8730 or visit www.nyu.edu/pages/casaitaliana.

Centro’s creations are obtained by digging and processing the basic numerical data of several digital images, which are then reworked and reinterpreted by the artist. Cento’s pixels fuse together, creating labyrinths of color that melt and combine in a two-dimensional space. It’s an artistic work that originates from and returns back to the image, hardly discernable to the human eye at first glance. Fascinating sceneries are created, fluid and diluted in an electronic, digital composition.

Cento also elaborates on and plays with world-renowned paintings, distorting their forms using several animation programs that transform the static into the dynamic, forcing the viewer to take the leap into the current digital era.
