SYNC Gallery presents G. Cody Day

Threshold is the point between two things. The moment where one ceases to be and the other begins. Threshold is the line in the sand, defining this from that, me from you, us from them. Perceived reality is dependent on perspective, and with a simple shift in perspective the governing laws of existence change dramatically. The natural world is built of many tiny fragments, that depending on viewpoint, behave as independent entities or as a collective whole. An adjustment in perspective can cause pieces to appear to behave autonomously and without regard, or to act as networked entity thriving off the collective efforts of the whole. As with a telescope lens the universe can appear as a mass of tiny specks floating in an endless void of darkness. With a change in focus, each tiny speck becomes its own universe, built of even smaller units. Threshold is the moment where the maximum ability of representation has been met. The breaking point where something cannot exceed existing in its current state or as what it is. Threshold is the line that separates and defines perceived reality. Thresholds is a collection of new work by G Cody Day focusing on the lines that divide and the lines that unite. The work expands Day's existing body with a macro-focus on the division between things and the moment of variance. Through use of rigorous process, Day builds depth and atmosphere, documenting the underlying similarities and differences in color and the application of the paint. Divisions in textures document the discoveries made and the parallels of similarity and variance. Thick and confident black lines dance through the captured moments in time emphasizing variation and unity through a calm collected chaos. Thresholds explores the theme of the manifestation of self, as the whole and as the part, and the lines that define. The installment of fresh brand new work exudes vibrance and life from the free flowing gentle gradients to the crisp lattice of interpretation and rule. The canvases, treated in Day's signature style, are the largest he has created to date, both in scope and physical dimension. Thresholds pushes self-imposed boundaries through horizons of color to their breaking point, focusing on the moment of change, and definition.
