The Witter Gallery is pleased to present the work of Roy Cacek for the month of December. The gallery will be showing Cacek's exhibition "Analog Art" from December 1 - 30. "Analog Art" is a collection of Cacek's paintings that focus on utilizing technology in the way he interprets the world around him. The paintings focus on the most basic shape, the square.
The paintings are abstract representational and deeply involves the viewer. The viewer will have different experiences with the piece as they see it from different distances. Up close the image will focus on the squares and color, then as the viewer backs up from the image, the squares will create a representational image. It is during this experience between the viewer and the work that the artist raises questions regarding perceived reality.
Cacek was educated in Iowa and now teaches at Grandview College after working as a user interface designer in Chicago. Cacek's work is on display in galleries and private collections across the Midwest.
Cacek's show can be seen free of charge during regular Witter hours or by appointment.
