Veronika Szkudlarek : Sustainable Futures, NYC

Chinatown Soup Gallery
16 Orchard St, Lower East Side, New York , NY 

Opening: October 5th from 5:00pm-8:00pm

Artists: Yasmeen Abdallah, Charisse Foo, Zoey Hart, Sohee Koo, Mangda Sengvanhpheng, and Veronika Szkudlarek

This exhibition explores the concept of sustainable futures. What does a sustainable future look like? In NYC? Around the world? As populations grow, sea levels rise, and food systems are modified, what role will sustainability and design play? In envisioning what a sustainable future is, it’s possible to imagine successful, as well as dystopian outcomes. 

Veronika Szkudlarek explores the interdisciplinary and innovative possibilities of paint and digital imaging by using traditional analogue material like oil paints and soft pastel with animation software like Cinema 4D, After Effects, Dragonframe and Photoshop.  She looks to areas of growth, including technology and expanded practices for inspiration, most recently using virtual reality to make 3D paintings.
