Depthcore XLII - Obsolete
It is fitting that the first two submissions to roll in for this Chapter would belong to our featured artist, Niklas Lundberg. His "Scattered Time" series set the bar for this chapter, both in terms of conceptual brilliance and elegance of execution. His three pieces epitomise this Chapter, and the influence they had on our collective creative process can not be understated; the only surprising thing about his selection as our first featured artist for this exhibition is that he has not been featured before.
Matt W. Moore brings his vectorfunk talent to Depthcore after accepting a long overdue invitation. Speaking of overdue invitations, Joshua Smith, aka Hydro74, graces OBSOLETE with two examples of his amazingly intricate work, and gives many of us the chance to know and work alongside someone who has served as a tremendous inspiration over the years. We were also graced by very strong debut pieces from recent invitees Daniel Diggle, Lucas de Alcântar, James Merill and Erik Schumacher, who have combined to bring wonderful new energy and some strong aesthetics variation to our collective.
This week marks nine years since Depthcore released it's first Chapter; 42 exhibitions and nearly 5000 pieces later, we are working hard to come to transcend the new reality we exist in as a collective; no longer a group of adolescent enthusiasts, we are striving to retain our relevance within the context of an art collective as an assembly of full time creative professionals. The aforementioned book project and partnership with deviantART has us all tremendously excited, and we look forward to providing updates on it over the coming weeks. We are similarly excited about our forthcoming exhibitions, as we aim to exhibit physically with the release of every Chapter henceforth.
We will further utilize this format to its potential, by syncing with other projects produced and curated within our creative family, and broadcasting content including articles from Pig Bimpin', artwork from Typcut, and products from Funkrush. These articles, in conjunction with regular updates from our artists on personal and commercial projects, as well the aforementioned rich content series will hopefully provide many of you a valuable and inspirational daily insight - all updates will be broadcast on our Twitter account, so now is a great time to follow if you haven't already. A tremendous thanks must go out to our development team; Karan Singh, Ravi Vasavan and Brian Smith for their tireless work - I would hope the result speaks for itself!
Enough words for now. There will be many more to come now with our dynamic new platform. Enjoy the Chapter, enjoy the new site design, enjoy the new content. Send us your thoughts and suggestions, we'd love to hear from you!
