TritonArts Gallery

TritonArts Gallery – non traditional Gallery Context

Triton Arts believes that any place, however small, large, public or private, can be an exhibition space for art. Therefore, we founded a gallery in Fall 2015 to provide more opportunities for all UCSD students interested in art to showcase their work in the Visual Arts Department. Through this gallery, Triton Art was able to provide ten different undergraduate Visual Arts students as well as one alumni with their first opportunity in solo exhibition building.

He takes a personal approach to crafting computer-based artwork, blending his experience with music, programming and color theory to spelunk the digital unconscious with a self-made system of visual instrumentation. RGB is a collection of improvised work created in this manner, with each piece manifesting as a unique examination of the subliminal relationship between digital tools and human instinct.

F 8.0 – Group Film Photo Exhibition

F 8.0 is a group exhibition from VIS 165, a class about material and conceptual analog photography practices. All the prints have been shot in film and hand processed in the darkroom. Based off the connecting themes across the student artwork, this show focuses on two ideas, the concept of a road trip and the surrounding landscapes, and also the human body and form.
