Canadian multidisciplinary visual artist and experimental producer Carson Teal uses visuals and audio to create moments that transcend the confines of physical space. He interlaces hand-drawn elements, lens flares, pixels, AI frames, symbologies, and found objects with digital textures and video projection elements to create works that recall a dream.
Carson Teal works within a global language of forms. A symbology derived in hybridity between digital and physical, where movements and mirages flicker, imbued with meaning that intentionally evades grasping.
From February 19 to April 12 2022, Sky Fine Foods presents Sentient Windows. This multi-dimensional solo exhibition can be enjoyed virtually in their Art Gate VR Gallery and physically in J. Spot Gallery in Toronto.
Sentient Windows features a new body of work consisting of looping videos, moving images, printed stills, and installation. Each work is a fusion of digital, artificial, and hand-drawn methods that intertwine. A keen interest in ancient symbologies inspired Teal to create a language of glyphs, a layered ideography without semiotic purpose. Teal seamlessly involves hand-created elements within a mastery of digital methods, resulting in sophisticated ethereal textures that glimmer and evolve in each work.
Carson Teal invites the viewer to linger in each work, fabricating an exquisite, tenuous space that fuses realities and expectations.
