Anne Vieux, Audrey Large, and Vickie Vainionpää
Bio Tech




October 14 – November 14, 2021

Opening Thursday, October 14th from 6-8pm

312 Bowery, New York, NY 10012

The Hole is proud to present a three-person show of painting, sculpture and video that are both futuristic and organic, about the dematerialization of the digital and the embodiment of a gorgeous and seductive virtual world.

Anne Vieux exhibits three new paintings where she has left hybrid printing techniques behind to embrace the unknown. Using the refracted light patterns of an optical scanner as a jumping off point, Anne mines the depths of digital imagery to look at the patterns and flows behind an image. Appearing at times both metallic and aqueous, her abstract paintings capture something not possible in an analog world, but give warmth and even soul to the randomized data.

Vickie Vainionpää paints seductive computer-assisted abstraction as well, also in full oil on canvas using traditional techniques. Totally tubular, her intestinal tangles include sensuous reflectivity and opacity, from areas of blushing pink powder to a clear colorful gel resplendent with reflected light.

Audrey Large makes iridescent 3D printed sculpture that look like fragments from a different reality, recovered and brought here for study. There is no logic or precedent for the formal decisions they contain, nor can they be seen as truly random. Her sculpture has a biological type of arrangement, with hieroglyphic-like doodles covering the surface. They could be vessels, or tables; function is implied but not fulfilled. We finally get to see these great works in person – come marvel at them alongside us.

Thursday night we will have Anne but Vickie is away on a residency in Italy and Audrey is in Rotterdam. We will also have drinks and merriment from 6-8pm.
