Artie Vierkant

Born 1986
Lives and works in New York

Artie Vierkant investigates the way we relate to images in a post-internet era. His series, Image Objects exist somewhere between physical sculptures and altered documentation images. Each piece begins its life as a digital file, of which countless variations exist. These are then rendered as UV prints on dibond and precision-cut to the form of the piece to create photographic prints with the depth and presence of a sculpture.

Vierkant received his BA from University of Pennsylvania in 2009 and his MFA from University of California, San Diego in 2011. He has had recent solo exhibitions in New York, London, Copenhagen, paris and Berlin. His 2010 essay "The Image Object Post-Internet" sparked much of the recent conversation surrounding art after the Internet.
