Yesterday a new chapter of Depthcore was released and and I was completely amazed by the quality of it's work and the creativity along the members. From drawings to typography, from illustrations to photo manipulations, even music is displayed in this new chapter. Check it out!

The Depthcore Collective is delighted to release it's 44th Chapter, "ECHOES". Featuring work themed around the concept of reflected sound, thought and memory, "ECHOES" is a diverse collection of artwork produced by members old and new over the course of the last eight months.
This Chapter embodies it's theme in several interesting ways. We've had a great showing from old members, artists who have been releasing with us for years and years. This is juxtaposed with more work from new members (and more new members) than any Chapter in recent history, including some members who got their start in digital art after seeing our early exhibitions. We're seeing styles that take the aesthetics of yesterday and present today's phase of it's evolution, as well as work that directly references aesthetic touchstones from our past sitting next to work created in a style never before present in a Depthcore Chapter; echoes converging that mirror the old and then move on to create the new.
Whilst perusing the Chapter in preparation for writing this article, it occurred to me that this may well be the first Chapter where traditional art outweighs digital. We've worked hard to create a balanced aesthetic within the collective, but it seems that in analysing our memories and delving into our past to create this exhibition, many of our members are reverting to their creative point of origin. There are also more series of work in this Chapter than ever before - quite appropriate when one considers the "Echoes" theme.
