Argenta Gallery of North Little Rock is proud to present “Glitch,” an art exhibit
showcasing the art of Dogtown local Jake West and curated by Will Hogg.
Over the past year, Jake has taken the reigns of a technique called ‘digital moshing’ to
create art that straddles both the tail end of the millennial era as well as the fresh start
of gen-Z. This process involves altering code of a digital photograph to create
distortions and colorations unachievable by camera alone. Jake considers the process
to be somewhere between mastery and complete guesswork. As such, the product
perfectly encapsulates existential order amidst artistic chaos. Within the code of the
digital photos, Jake can embed his stories and secrets, leaving serendipitous art which
symbolizes the artistry of an accident.
