About The Artwork

mixed media on corrugated cardboard *this work is unmounted,unframed* all materials collected and mined in Los Angeles and Highland Park California during my Residency that ran concurrently with my solo show NONEXTANT at GOLD HAUS GALLERY. This work of art was produced during the 7 weeks spent working in and behind the gallery as the show ran and as I engaged in conversations with the local neighborhood residents. Cody Bayne refers to his work as NEO-URBAN EXPRESSIONISM and to himself as a NEW INFORMALIST. The work explores he ubiquitous beauty of decay & renewal of the discarded and torn via a diverse range of sources and influences. He “mines’ his environment and reconfigures the information with the intent for combined context of social implications & visual harmony. The work is intended to create a connection to the beauty of the decayed & discarded, the new & reborn. He’s interested in urban decay, urban renewal, gentrification & the commercialism that is a part of everyday experience living in Los Angeles. “Rawness & incompleteness speaks to current conditions of the regions that I tend to inhabit & explore. Thus, it is as much a reflection of my inner self, as much as it is a comment of my personal external experience. Though I do not approach the work through a filter of Social Commentary, I do draw upon the visual references that inhabit an environment that reflects upon itself and allow the work to reveal deeper meaning. My work roots deeply in the present contemporary sphere whilst simultaneously connecting to references from a wide range of sources, such as Nouveau Realism, 20th C. Modernism & Historical Mythologies “ “ I’m interested in a conversation. I appreciate the dialogues instigated by the ambiguity surrounding the work. It is familiar yet foreign, abstract yet politicized, all depending on the viewers’ personal experiences and relationship to the information. I like suggestion and possibility more than specifics. It is visceral, as well as, simply visual.” “Quite simply, I find the dissonance of urban decay and urban renewal butted directly against one another beautiful.” "I like the Space between. The Void. The Nowhere. The Everywhere." -cody bayne

Cody Bayne is an Artist based in Los Angeles. He has exhibited his work extensively across the United States, Canada, and Europe, and is known for his interdisciplinary approach to art-making. His practice encompasses painting, mixed media, sculpture, and new media, all of which he uses to explore themes of time, impermanence, identity, and place. Bayne's work is characterized by a personal visual language that creates intellectual and emotional connections with the viewer. He often uses materials sourced from various cities around the world to create a visual vernacular that is both familiar and foreign. His work is influenced by 20th-century art movements such as Nouveau Réalisme and Art Informel, and he has coined the terms Neo-Urban Expressionism and Urban Informalism as quantifiers for his physical practice. Bayne's artistic process involves "harvesting" information from the environment of the city and reassembling materials into compositions that reflect his interest in the beauty of flaws and the discarded. He balances formulaic parameters with action-oriented processes, and allows immediacy and accidental interventions to play a strong role in the making of his work. His artist hand is discernible in all his work, serving as a symbol of both humanity and the distressed conditions and environments that inspire him. Though Bayne does not intentionally approach his work through a filter of social commentary, he is keenly aware that the poetry of the metropolis leads to this conversation. His work is contemporary and academic, addressing impermanence, coded vernaculars, identity, and place. Through his art, Bayne strives to create a visual dialogue that transposes from walls, streets, and a personal language, and fosters a connection between contemporary art and cultural intersectionality.
