Cody Bayne is an Artist based in Los Angeles & the founder of c/NUE (Center for Neo-Urban Expressionism), which currently maintains a digital presence with an outreach plan over the next few years to create gallery & institutional partnerships for core c/NUE artists. He coined the term NEO-URBAN EXPRESSIONISM to create a reference to his work specifically but has since found a handful of artists around the globe pursuing a similar conversation with their practice and with c/NUE he hopes to help spark the Social Conversation that the work & artists' address. He considers himself in more broad strokes 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.”
