    work by Tiberiu Chelcea

    April 9-May 6, 2018

    Tiberiu Chelcea takes elements and processes of traditional printmaking and combines them with parts and operations of digital technologies.  His work demonstrates unexpected correlations between old and new technologies and issues of consumption, serial design, automated vs labor-intensive processes, are brought to the fore. His works been exhibited throughout United States (New York, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Iowa and other states) as well as Mexico, Egypt and Brazil. Mr. Chelcea was born in Romania and came to United States to pursue a PhD in Computer Science. He has received several awards, fellowships and patents in the field of electronic and digital design, which continues to be a major source of inspiration for his art.
