Well-known local urban artist Danny Rock is conducting his first solo art exhibit at the walk through gallery project located at 55 West Church Street on January 17th at 6pm. The inspiration and meaning behind the work is the transition of time, art, and technology. In a previous article, I wrote a lengthy bio about the artist and the meaning behind his unique way of painting. His visions, his motivations, and inspirations, which are all the elements that help, create his masterpieces.
Now the RAWartist alumni and Artist of the Mills 50 project is evolving his efforts and preparing to take his next journey with MagArt. What is MagArt, well it's one specific Curator known to many artists world wide as Marcano Magart. MagArt acts as a platform for emergent talent and helps influence cross-cultural exchange of dynamic selections of fine art.
"Fine art has to be universal, so that it may be admired for what it is, because it is art. Once art becomes universal it is then considered to be fine art." - Marcano Magart, Curator
Magart's quote helps express his very powerful passion for the Arts and the communities inwhich his artists associate with. He believes his artists work should be displayed as its meant to be, in fine art galleries where artists can have "walk throughs" that are free to the public and allows the collectors and investors to exhibit one artists work over a variety of artist's work. Which provides a "window of opportunity", literally speaking, for individual artist to generate the right collectors and or investors. Rock's art will be on display from January 12th - February 5th. Gallery hours are Monday - Friday, 11:00am - 10:00pm
Here is a little brain stimulation for those of you who enjoy the irony of numbers and codes, below is a brief translation of the number sequences Danny Rock incorporates into his art.
The binary numeral system, or base-2 numeral system, represents numeric values using two symbols: 0 and 1. More specifically, the usual base-2 system is a positional notation with a radix of 2. Because of its straightforward implementation in digital electronic circuitry using logic gates, the binary system is used internally by almost all modern computers and computer-based devices such as mobile phones. Counting in binary is similar to counting in any other number system. Beginning with a single digit, counting proceeds through each symbol, in increasing order. Decimal counting uses the symbols 0 through 9, while binary only uses the symbols 0 and 1.
0 0 0 0 numerical value 1
1 0 0 0 numerical value 2
0 1 0 0 numerical value 3
1 1 0 0 numerical value 4
Any number can be represented by any sequence of bits (binary digits), which in turn may be represented by any mechanism capable of being in two mutually exclusive states.
The following sequence of symbols can be interpreted as the binary numeric value of 667:
1 0 1 0 0 1 1 0 1 1
| − | − − | | − | |
x o x o o x x o x x
y n y n n y y n y y
After a digit reaches 9, an increment resets it to 0 but also causes an increment of the next digit to the left. In binary, counting is the same except that only the two symbols 0 and 1 are used. Thus after a digit reaches 1 in binary, an increment resets it to 0 but also causes an increment of the next digit to the left:
0001, (rightmost digit starts over, and next digit is incremented)
0010, 0011, (rightmost two digits start over, and next digit is incremented)
0100, 0101, 0110, 0111, (rightmost three digits start over, and the next digit is incremented)
1000, 1001, ...
