The Depthcore Collective is proud to release it’s 43rd themed chapter exhibition, “TIME”. As we near our 10th anniversary, this seems to be an appropriate subject for us as a collective to reflect upon. Ten years have passed by, and the students and teenagers who once populated the group are gone, replaced by full time freelance artists, independent small-business owners and focused creative professionals. Finding the time (oh, the puns are endless with this theme) to create these Chapters has become increasingly difficult.
And yet, here we are, with one of our largest collections in the past few years. It certainly came together slowly—after the excitement of our presentation at OFFF, our first exhibition here in New York City, the come down from the highs of travelling and showing, and to the reality of starting over to create a new Chapter was brutal. Pieces drizzled in over the first few months, and for a little while it seemed like this theme would get the better of us. Then, all of a sudden, art started pouring in. Not just art, but really good art; the put-your-headphones-on-and-stay-up-until-one-o’clock-in-the-morning-because-you’re-excited-by-what-you’ve-seen good art. All of a sudden, the collective is buzzing with guys and girls talking about how this might turn out to be something special. More than eighty pieces later, we’re tremendously excited by what we’re putting on show today.
Our featured artist for this Chapter is Vesna Pesic, a very recent addition to the collective. Her work, with it’s unique aesthetic and collage based approach, adds a wonderful new depth to our collective aesthetic and provided a couple of the key sparks in our creative process. This Chapter also sees us welcome several new members, including artists Pavel Sabelnikov, Benjamin Mounsey, Pat Perry, Abo and Ooli from Orka Collective and musician Falinox. We’re very excited by what these unique talents bring to the table—browse “TIME” to pick out their debut pieces!
We hope you enjoy the latest Chapter of our work, and look forward to sharing more content including workshops, wallpapers and more with you over the coming weeks. Thanks for your ongoing support – we’ll be back with our 44th Chapter and a few more surprises next year. Happy Holidays to all!
