The Obliterated Crow is my first solo exhibition at Murmurations Gallery, Bexhill, from Tuesday 17th May until Sunday 29th May 2016. The gallery is open from 10.30am to 4.30 pm (closed Mondays). Further details below…
Having both a degree in Fine Art and a Masters in IT, I experience the tension and synchronicity of these divergent disciplines. Using physical and digital media in isolation, in combination and iteratively, I produce sets and series of images to explore real and perceptual change.
We are physically and conceptually defined by the tools we use and understand. We anchor ourselves to the spotlights of our competencies, nodes in networks of change surrounded by shadow. I represent perceptual change by exploiting different tools; applying physical and digital media creates many perspectives but simultaneously hints at a singularity.
A piece of work hides as much as it reveals. Obliteration is inherent to the act of recording; this is true of both art and IT. Obliterated Crow presents a series of visual conversations between a crow, the air and the media used. My conversation began with the crow on Galley Hill. She tilted her head and made eye contact; I drew her. “Think that’s interesting?” she asked, as she skipped into the air and played with the wind.
On Saturday 21st May and Saturday 28th May there is a `Technical Walk Through‘ where I will discuss the processes used to combine the physical and digital media to produce the Obliterated Crow series.
On Sunday 22nd May and Sunday 29th May there is a `Concept Walk Through‘ where I discuss the ideas that drive my practice and those specifically related to the Obliterated Crow series.
