Terry Trickett's Digital Artworks
Terry Trickett is an architect and designer who has recently developed an interest in Digital Imagery and New Media. Various influences are apparent in Terry Trickett’s digital artworks. First, images can be inspired by an aspect of building geometry which is then subjected to a series of manipulations and additions. Secondly, they can make play with unexpected juxtapositions by bringing together a plethora of pictorial references as a ‘collage’. Yet another group seeks to create impossible scenarios or fantasies.
All aspects of Terry Trickett’s work – geometric, juxtapositional or fantastic - hold in common the potential of becoming ‘live’. Static digital artworks can be made to move, blend or animate so as to create a further level of interest for the viewer. Such works are built with ‘Processing’ – an advanced program for creating movement which first came to the artist’s notice during the V&A’s Decode exhibition in 2010. Terry Trickett has now embraced the techniques involved and anticipates taking them further in the future.
In 2009, Terry Trickett submitted three digital artworks works to Digital 09 – Mysteries of
Science. Under the title ‘From
Bucky to Gehry’ these were displayed at the New York Hall of Science and
subsequently at the Packer Collegiate Institute in Brooklyn, New York. Subsequently, they were displayed at
The Science Exchange of the Royal Institution of Australia.
Also in 09, Terry Trickett’s digital artwork was selected for display at PRINT NOW, an exhibition of innovative print, held at the London Art Fair 2010.
In 2010, three works were accepted for inclusion in the 9th Lessedra World Art Print Annual 2010 (Produced in Sofia, Bulgaria).
LarkGallery Online, Long Beach, California is currently displaying Terry Trickett’s work under the headings of ‘The Rediscovery of Wonder’ and ‘Colors of Life’.

Metamorphosis 1, 2 & 3 were exhibited at the IV International Printmaking

In June 2012, Terry Trickett’s video ‘Indian World’ was displayed at the Santa Fe International New Media Festival 2012. This and other videos are viewable on Terry Trickett’s You Tube channel.
in June 2012, at the 3rd Annual International Conference on Visual and
Performing Arts held in Athens, Terry Trickett spoke on the
topic 'The Breadth of the Source-Code Becomes the Brush of the Artist'.
calling on his skills as a clarinettist, Terry Trickett contributed his own piece of Performance Art demonstrating how
a theme and variations, 'Metamorphosis', could be interpreted both aurally and visually to telling effect.
Currently, Terry Trickett's 'Viral Life 2' is on display at New York's Hall of Science as part of an exhibition called Science Inspires Art: VitalSigns 2012.
