Ping Pong Gallery is pleased to announce its first solo exhibition with Deric Carner.
Deric Carner uses drawing and graphic forms as a way of navigating and relating to the world. He is a collector and manipulator of signs and messages, incorporating visual and textual fragments into an overcoded vocabulary. They are taken from a globalized environment and mindset that is so loaded with signs and references, that meaning is constantly disintegrating or reforming around deracinated forms.
On view at Ping Pong Gallery are a series of hand-painted graphic posters which take an uncanny pleasure in naming and associating. Odd objects are paired with headline references to fictional and real locales, movements and people. These elliptical markers invite viewers to enter a territory of double, negated and hidden meaning. This work emerges from a perspective of rational skepticism; yet moves beyond towards the paradoxical freedom and tensions of semiotic vertigo.
