'Eat the Feeling' By Deric Carner

Share this announcement on:  |

'Eat the Feeling' is an 100 page publication of original artwork created by artist and designer Deric Carner. It presents an in-depth look at his scanner-based collage practice dealing with fashion, art, desire and celebrity. Images are created by cutting, folding, painting and digitally altering photos and studio material. This manipulation process offers a personal and critical take on media consumption and identity. The results are at once tender and raw, and point to the many interests and tactics of an artist working in the gap between media and materiality.

A selection of circular wall prints will be presented during the event. In this series, images of men's bodies are sliced up, and mixed with bright flowers, butterflies and surgical illustrations. Publications will be available for purchase during the event, and at Dashwood Books and online at

Deric Carner makes painted, printed and sculpted works that explore the ambiguities and pleasures of the image in the digital era. His work seeks to discover something new in the juxtaposition of known elements and unexpected moves. Flattened aesthetic zones are layered against each other to produce weird depths and vivid sutures.

Deric Carner (b. Arlington, VA, lives in Brooklyn) received an MFA at the Piet Zwart Institute, Rotterdam, 2005; MA from the University of Plymouth, UK, 2005, and a BFA from the University of California at Santa Cruz, 1998. Recent exhibitions include 'Rear Window Treatment' at Louis B James, NYC and 'Stay, just for a little while' at Romer Young Gallery, San Francisco. He has exhibited at EFA Project Space, Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Centre Pompidou, Spazio A, Participant Inc., Gallery Aferro, Queen's Nails Projects, Southern Exposure, Artist's Space and CAC Vilnius.
