My specialism is lateral thinking, resolving the complexity encountered in the world with reductive poetic logic. I intertwine commercial and cultural practice: responding to the paradox of daily life and the complexities of project assignments. I seek focused solutions that feel inevitable. I get there by starting at the beginning, asking why, what if… then making sense of the things I find with radical acceptance and by embracing truth.
Please follow me on Instagram. I am reposting works, exploring the things I have made over the past twenty years in preparation for the next twenty years.
210mm x 297 A4 glass clip frame, acrylic paint
Edition of 60 signed and numbered copies, each unique
The clip frame backing board is marked in pencil, mapping geometric shapes and proportions relational to its dimensions and the four slot apertures. Colours are emotiomaticaly selected and combined, in rhythm to the mantra internalised, and applied at the intersection of lines. The final composition grows from the weight of the glass and the gentle squeeze exerted by the frames clips, spreading and connecting colours between the two surfaces. Made to be displayed in transitional spaces, to remind the viewer to be fully present.
Note on viewing: Each painting is its own universe, select one. Breathe slowly and deeply whilst observing the painting. Gradually let your gaze go out of focus. Meditate on the centre of the painting, allowing its geometry to bring your mind to a state of balance.
Composite Fly Poster
digital files, digitally printed, 30 inches by 40 inches (762mm x 1020mm)
Response to an invitation to make a fly poster for an exhibition curated by Jon Bland…
Take all received submissions and using Photoshop form one composite image by layering all designs at varying levels of transparency so one element from each poster is visible. No other change or manipulation should be introduced, ie. no scaling or cropping.
I have now received all the other 48 posters from the No Fly Posters project so i've started to create your composite image. It's pretty difficult in this case to make an element from each design visible when there are so many designs. However when you turn each layers visibility on and off it makes a difference to the image - if that makes sense. Jon Bland
