UNIX Gallery is pleased to present Dutch artist Ellen de Meijer’s first New York solo show, Digital Divide. This latest series of paintings follows de Meijer’s successful showings at Art Stage Singapore, Art Toronto and Art Miami. The opening reception for Digital Divide will be held at UNIX Gallery on February 5, from 6 – 8 PM, and runs through March 5, 2015.
In Digital Divide, Ellen de Meijer’s works express a ruminative perspective from what you don’t see to what you feel everyday. De Meijer intends to capture the impact of our postmodern society on human behavior and the conflict between our basic human instincts of love, greed, fear and community, and our constant desire to progress and succeed.
“Digital Divide is about all of us. The last 20 years we have experienced an enormous evolution mainly driven by technology and the digital revolution. But our human instincts have not changed, despite that our modern society often expects us to ignore these. It’s this tension that inspires my work,” says de Meijer.
