About The Artwork

THIS WORK IS IN A PRIVATE COLLECTION IN LOS ANGELES Cody Bayne is an Artist based in Los Angeles. He coined the term NEO-URBAN EXPRESSIONISM in reference to his work & considers himself in more broad strokes as a NEW INFORMALIST. The work explores the 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 like the Space between. The Void. The Nowhere. The Everywhere." “ 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.” " ALL work begins by searching my interior thoughts, obsessions and experiences in relationship to what it means for me to live in a Society of Conflict . decay/renewal, joy/despair, love/hate. All are two sides of one coin and the weight of metal that coin is cast in ..is the void in which my art lives "

Cody Bayne is an Artist based in Los Angeles. Cody's work explores time, impermanence, coded vernaculars, identity & place He makes mixed-media works which he refers to as Urban Informalism or Neo-Urban Expressionism. He has been compared with key artists of the 20th century - Jasper Johns, Rauschenberg & Warhol due to how he creates work that establishes a relationship to contemporary culture by forging a new visual language. N.U.E. offers the opportunity sociocultural comment that lays at the intersection of Graffiti, Art Washing & the Contemporary Art by establishing a new urban vernacular that can also be referred to as Urban Informalism. ||| I create a relationship between contemporary art and cultural intersectionality. By forging a visual language and personal dialogue my work strives for intellectual and emotional connection with the viewer. I use materials sourced from cities around the world, which serve as backdrop of urban decay creating a unique urban vernacular, one that is both familiar and foreign to all of us. In essence, I see the work as a unification of familiars. I’m drawn to beauty of flaws, the discarded and interested how it’s physically present everywhere yet overlooked concurrently. I “harvest” information from the environment of the city and in my studio reassemble the materials. In so doing, I’m interested in dialogue between the materials I use and the sociocultural comments that the work leads to. The work is executed with a balance of formulaic parameters and action oriented process. Immediacy and accidental interventions play a strong role in the making of the work with intention to create connection to the beauty of the decayed and discarded. I allow my artist hand to be present and discernible in all my work as a symbol not only of humanity but also of distressed conditions and environments that inspire me. Though I do not intentionally approach the work through a filter of social comment I am keenly aware, that by drawing upon these cues and visual references, the poetry of the metropolis leads to this conversation. My work is both contemporary and academic. By acknowledging legacy art movements and methods referenced in my work, I’m creating art based in urban informalism influenced by Street Art, Graffiti, Modernism & Contemporary Art.
