OVERPOP focuses on a group of artists who are defining a new contemporary aesthetic. Their work embodies an intensification of the pop tradition, portraying an enhanced reality. These artists are responding to the impact of the internet on visual perception, but their work is more than “post-internet” art. Their work incorporates the historical tradition of Pop Art in addition to responding to the acceleration of digital imagery. They reflect not only the influence of Marcel Duchamp and Andy Warhol but the contributions of artists like Jeff Koons, Richard Prince, Haim Steinbach, and Cady Noland as well. The work is conceptual but also highly visual. It is created with a strong awareness of the impact of context and display. The artists emphasize precision of craft and execution. The artist’s hand is generally subsumed within an aesthetic of industrial and artisanal fabrication techniques. The artists in this group work across media, extending their vision through painting, sculpture, film, and performance. The artists in OVERPOP insert themselves into the increasingly complex interchange between fine art and popular culture as their work defines the extreme present.
