An interview with JD Doria at the Phripheral ARTeries Magazine
excerpt from the article: Hello and a warm welcome to Peripheral ARTeries. I would start this interview with my usual introductory question: what in your opinion defines a work of Art?
“The very power of art, in my eyes, lies in its capacity to reflect on one hand a fresh texture of being and on the other a corresponding new landscape of matter. Art brings both to the examination of the viewer, creating a junction between seemingly parallel domains, and when the meeting ‘happens’ and a new landscape conjoins with a new texture of being, that is when art affirms itself.”
SYN Magazine : THE PETRI-DISH PROJECT by J.D DORIA
Give him a petri-dish; he gives you a visual creation. J.D Doria, interdisciplinary artist based in Tel Aviv has bridged the gap between art and interpretational science, presenting us with a collective of technologically inspired creativity in the form of recreated petri dishes.
In place of a canvas, the Petri-Dich Project, Doria’s latest stretch of works uses a glass container as a multidimensional medium from which art is not only produced, but, quite literally grown. The process involves assemblages of liquid colours and materials that activate to deliver a fantasy of disorganized yet enchanting creations. Digitally capturing these creations is where science turns into intricate visual art. The enlarged images amalgamate somewhere in the middle of creativity and technology, wonderfully easy on the eye, whilst never dispersing into the norm; remaining a labyrinth of colour and shape to decipher.
