Recent: AAL Grad Show
My fellow graduates of Art Academy London’s BA (Hons) Fine Art and I have taken over our Mermaid Court campus near London Bridge from 1-5th July 2022.
In the showroom I was honoured to share with my fellow student Simon Yates, I have shown pieces that strongly reflect my conceptual concerns and introduce my digitally inspired, intentionally distorted visual language.
Glitch Gone Material
I find that nothing articulates virtual as well as a glitch does. Like beauty, it commands our attention, and it wakes us up. We notice being plucked out of immediate reality and sucked into a virtual one. As digital distortions compromise the materiality of canvas, I invite the viewer into such a waking opportunity.
"There is no definitive perspective that dominates Selec’s works. Instead, they are both connected and disjointed by the changing grids and pixels contained within. On occasion the outcome is more fluid and attractive, other times it provokes risk and retaliation. Unlike an algorithm error set in place only to eradicate negative feedback, Selec warns and allures you towards tempting digital worlds."
~ Maryam Arshad, FAYD Editor in Chief
"Selec’s work investigates the glitch, something that is mysterious, unknowable and usually temporary or short-lived. This transient fault is intrinsically difficult to troubleshoot and therefore hard to pin down in technological terms and life! The same can be said of the effects of uncertainty and the anxiety caused by technology and consuming media. The layers of glitch on glitch can confuse us further and thus mounts the tension and anxiety."
