OJO is six independent thinkers who pursue individual interests yet converge to 'play' together. Their work (or play) seeks to reach out to the public as they negotiate the hurdles of live audience injected performance. For this project OJO will present individual visual works that are written, drawn, painted, constructed, erased, built, embossed, recalled, spoken, sung, conducted, engraved, poured, obliterated, sampled, looped, bombed, and peeled.
Joshua Aster: The axe-grinder guitarist constructs hybridized ink paintings of bit-stream geometrics with sharp-tongued washes.
Chris Avitabile: The multi-instrumentalist scours the throwaway rock t-shirt gutter to re-animate past idols into alien forms very much the product our world.
Justin Cole: The bassman holds a firm line of reduction creating graphite graphic sillouettes which splice classic albums with an allover abstracted space.
Eamon Ore-Giron: The beat driver's field of vision includes anthropomorphic gouaches of sensitivity and a full spectrum palette to sear the retina.
Moises Medina: The voice, the trumpet, the octopus, the wordsmith.
Brenna Youngblood: The organist composes collaged photographs and found materials with furious painterly expression into forces of nature.
DOCUMENTATION: Jeremy Rocine
