Combining works in conversions of media, Flux is a display of ancient technique combined with modern technology. Works in traditional forms flow from computer manipulated drawings, and become paintings, panels and sculpture; while paintings become projections. Threads of thought are caught as a singular image, and narrative, while suggested, is open to interpretation. Flux combines art and the technology of making art in a comprehensive array of media and techniques, and resonates on concepts of gender, change, transformation, and personal mythology.

Eliot Daughtry is an interdisciplinary artist working at the crossroads of art and technology. Eliot’s latest work is primarily in acrylic, wood, stained glass & vitreous painting; combining ancient form with a distinct formal vision. Eliot works in abstract narratives that address gender, technology and urban themes.
