Using light and projection with drawing, painting and new media, New Jersey artist Eric Valosin is a seeker of “techno-sublime.”
Valosin, whose solo works will be exhibited at Warren County Community College through the end of December, explores the potentials of mystical experience since postmodernism, in a world whose space is more often cyber than sacred. His works straddle the realms of traditional mysticism and post modern phenomenology as he aims to challenge perceptual expectations and open new territories for contemporary mystical experiences.
Valosin’s works are on display in the Second Floor Gallery at the college, during college hours. Open to the public, an opening reception is scheduled for Thursday Dec. 8 from 6-8 p.m.
Valosin considers himself an artist of “ontotechnology” which blends various forms of styles . His exhibition features interactive new media, drawings, and installation art.
Valosin holds an MFA from Montclair State University. He is an adjunct professor in art and communications at the College of St. Elizabeth and is a contributing editor to the highly regarded art blog, “Not What It Is.” To learn more about Valosin, visit ericvalosin.com.
