A new exhibition Electric Sheep by local artist Luke Pellen will open with an artist talk event on Saturday 27 August 2022 at 11:00am at The Riddoch Arts and Culture Centre.

Luke Pellen’s Electric Sheep was informed by a fusion of art history and rapid changing technology. Working with a unique collaborator for this body of work, Artificial Intelligence (AI), they created new imagined worlds.

Through the artistic possibilities of AI, this exhibition shows four main AI tools which have been developed in the last twelve months: Visions of Chaos, MidJourney, Stable Diffusion and DALL-E.

Riddoch Arts and Cultural Centre Manager Diana Warnes said the Centre is delighted to be hosting the innovative work by Luke Pellen in the King’s Floor Gallery.

Luke is an innovator and pushing the boundaries of contemporary image making, while keeping his practice firmly grounded in an art historical tradition
