Wright, rite, write, right

Past: September 13 → October 21, 2012

According to Linkedin, Derek Sullivan is chairman of Atlantic DataSystems; he is about 40 years old and lives in Newfoundland and Labrador in Canada. In his dark suit that he likes to wear with a white shirt, because of a strict upbringing that convinced him to favor a certain form of conservatism, his gaze is sincere and his smile, self-confident. Derek Sullivan is also a Production Artist at Methodologie in Seattle, Washington State, in the Northwest of the United States. Whether weekdays or weekends, he prefers polo shirts in sober colors rather than suits. He grew a manly beard, which toughens his otherwise childish expressions and attracts attention to the lower part of his face rather than on his baldness. And Derek Sullivan is also an independent Fine Art Professional from the Toronto area, who has worked as a coordinator for Underline Studio, a multidisciplinary graphic design agency. A person who considers that in order to exist, a work of art cannot rely solely on the fact of being produced. It must clone itself through representations published in magazines, collected in books, fragmented on Internet. The very existence of a work of art depends on its promotion. Thus, since he has left Underline Studio, his work focuses on the media existence of artwork, not as a toned down form of the original, but as an additional occurrence of it.
