On November 29, 21012, Cincinnati native and local Santa Cruzian, visual artist and thinker, Tony DeVarco came into the KZSC studio to talk on Artist on Art about his work, recent exhibitions, and book projects.
Tony’s exhibition at the Marta Hewitt Gallery in the Pendleton Art Center is Way of Time; Recent Digital Photomontage, ended recently. The exhibition consisted of very large poetic prints, some of which were taken from a book he co-created with his wife, Bonnie DeVarco, Way of Time: Spinning the Threads of Kairos & Chronos. He spoke extensively of his creative process to create the images by taking multitudes of photographic images, which he later juxtaposes in singular, multidimensional compositions that allow a simultaneous experience of the intimate and the infinite.
Tony talked about his artistic beginnings as a sculptor and set designer for performance artists as well as being the former Director of the Buckminster Fuller Institute. Like Fuller, Tony pursues interests in many fields, functioning as a committed visual artist, as well as a specialist in high performance cloud computing and geo-visualization.
