STIMULUS

Municipal Art Gallery of Piraeus, Athens Greece
26th - 30th June 2017

curated by Art Number 23          www.artnumber23.uk/upcoming

Touring on from 'STIMULUS' Berlin, this group exhibition now arrives in Athens.

'The aim of this exhibition is to present some of the various incentives that motivate artists to produce a work of art. These could be, amongst others, filtering and analysing the information we receive; cultural influences and background; building relationships and observing our social environment; what we find aesthetically pleasing; past experiences, traumas; and many more.

 This selection of artworks will also reflect on what leads artists to create a type of language, through their concepts and techniques, in order to express their perspectives, their feelings, and their position on subjects of their interest.

 In addition to the above, it would be interesting to observe how sometimes artists can be triggered by the same or similar impulses, but interpret them in different ways, or choose diverse approaches to portray them.'   (Art Number 23).

OBSERVATION POINT 1 detail front TRAXLER

 

I have a small 3D painting/sculpture in this group exhibition:

‘OBSERVATION POST 1’ is from my recent body of work reacting to a former WWII radar bunker. After its service, from 1941 until it became non-operational in 1947, the site was left to deteriorate and became derelict. This assemblage creates an encrypted communication between open landscape and an intimate architectural space. Lightly interlocking and carefully constructed,this fragmented composition slots together, each piece interacting with its neighbour. The cut edges of the paper function as lines in space interplaying with the mark making on the surface.
