An oscilloscope without input generates a flat line. When a simple waveform is amplified, a flat line becomes animated. When a simple waveform is modulated by another, and another... a flat line can take on the limitless possibilities of pattern, shape, and texture.
Oscillations is a solo exhibition featuring a new body of work by artist Jon Vogt.
In a new series of collaged colored pencil drawings, Vogt shows off a visual affinity towards woven structures, digital imagery, and signal modulation. Each drawing surface, subdivided into a grid of hand cut pixels, builds to create an optical landscape of shifting line and movement. Through an arranged set of limitations controlled by the artist, Vogt uses collage to transform flat lines into interwoven lattices of energetic pattern.
