Chris Coy’s Pseudochromes are monochrome paintings in chroma key green, the color most widely used in video production to remove and replace large areas of imagery. Paired with white tracking markers in their corners, Coy provides a surface void of image content or meaning save the provocation for the entirety of the image to itself be replaced.  The pieces presented by Coy for In Post are among the few physical objects he produces, having located much of his practice in immaterial gestures on the Internet and through the circulation of stray images.  Coy himself frequently takes images from a variety of sources and will insert subtle interventions to them in Photoshop and other image altering platforms, re-releasing them, dėtourned, onto the Internet.

In addition to a BFA in graphic design from Brigham Young University, Coy recently received an MFA from the Roski School of Art at the University of Southern California. Recent group exhibitions include Net Work I.R.L. (in this room), organized by Donnie Cervantes at Station Gallery, Los Angeles and Re:Cut curated by Michael John Kelly at the Torrance Art Museum.
