Editor’s Note This is an exciting month for TBC Artists’ Collective as, for the first time, 12-Pages contains work received after an Open Call for submissions. This issue has challenged artists to create new works based on the theme of ‘Hybrid’. Contributing artists have interpreted Hybrid in a number of ways, for example by looking at notions of hybridity in music, language, science, materials, processes, and philosophy. The work of 14 artists is included in the issue, each with an individual approach to the brief. Concerned with issues of hybridity between analogue and digital methods of producing artworks, and hybrid words, which combine etymologically Latin and Greek parts, Charley Peters’ work Ghosts (2011), is a series of three digital halftone drawings of analogue television static. The word ‘television’ is derived from a hybrid Latin and Greek origin meaning ‘far sight’: Greek ‘tele’, far, and Latin ‘visio’, sight. Taking a more temporal approach, Laura Davidson’s 7 Rough Mayan Lunar Cycles (2011) is taken from the Dresden Codex, a preColumbian Mayan document of seasons, eclipses and cycles of the moon. The symbols in this instance have been printed and drawn roughly onto pages torn from an anatomy handbook for art students. Hybridity in Davidson’s work is articulated through the idea of the body’s relationship to passing time and the documentation of such. Vitesh Vithlani’s painting is influenced by Vedic spirituality and philosophy. Vithlani refers to dictionary definitions of hybrid, ‘anything derived from hetergeneneous sources or composed of elements of different or incongruous kinds’. In his work he establishes an equation that refers to consciousness: 5 senses + emotion + ego = experience. There are numerous other informed and imaginative interpretations of the term Hybrid over the following pages, each as engaging and beguiling as the one before. Please enjoy this issue.
