The Civic Media Center will host a special installation for the monthly Gainesville Artwalk on Friday, February 25th from 7-10pm. The installation will be anchored by the work of longtime Gainesville musician, performance and video artist Frog. It will include 2 and 3 dimensional work by Ocala's Chrysanna Layton, and Gainesville's own Andy Krone.

Frog will be sharing videos in between sets of music by his experimental electronic music project, the Radels. "Dog in three easy pieces" and "reflections" are two videos that will be featured. "Dog in three easy pieces" is a 42 minute, black and white journey through strobing light. "Reflections" features sun reflections off the Atlantic ocean. Weather permitting, videos will be projected in the courtyard behind the CMC.

The Radels utilize traditional Indian rhythms and instruments in non-traditional ways. Several tabla rhythms will be layered to arrive at more complex polyrhythms. This same technique, of overlapping simple information to create more complex and evolving structures, is also implemented by multiple tanpuras and a Swar Mandal. These Indian source sounds are further manipulated, live, through the employment of a kaoss three pad and two monotrons.

Chrysanna Layton:

I work in a variety of mediums and enjoy exploring new techniques and experimenting with random objects as materials for making art come to life. All work is available for purchase and customized prints are available in various size, material, and framing options. Mural Prints are an interesting option. Abstract, surreal, different, dark, colorful, and psychedelic are all words that have been used to relate to my unusual style of art.

Andy Krone:

These paintings are a "Study" of color theory. I say a "Study" of color theory because I believe color can never be mastered. Color theory. Only a handful of artists' have come close. So my friends, I can only provide you, the public, my interpretation of color, and theory, and arrangement. Thank you...
