Eric Daigh: We Have One Conversation

Eric Daigh: We Have One Conversation at Carl Hammer Gallery in Chicago, IL. "...Using push pins, the innocuous, adhesive, near-detritus of our everyday, Eric Daigh’s work is that rare aerial perspective of the faces we see everyday, the vistas of common personalities, the long view of the human. You can stand up close, squint into the vacu-formed industrial sheen of some common object, but such a perspective only argues the atomic structure of his work. As we pull back, one quotidian reference morphs into another. Objects become portraits, the pedestrian becomes sublime. Molecules, pixels, cultivated fields, all speak to his medium. He starts with a flat 5 color cadence, all just rhythmic loops, then relationships form, a singularity shifts into subtle congress, and depth and tones appear. We step back further and slowly, as if through the portal of some remote ship we suddenly recognize 'That’s us - That’s me.'"
