I am very excited to have one of my collages from Death Landscapes III featured in Bonk! Magazine #3.2 – The Lines issue. Bonk! Magazine is an experimental print publication that showcases the work of writers and artists. It is also an exploration of the possibilities of print and design as mediums. They publish text, images, and design loosely organised around a single theme. This magazine, along with previous issues can be purchased via their website.
A new 48 x 24 inch print I created for the NH7 Periphery Art Project on the theme ‘Utopia’.
Commissioned and curated by Bombay Duck Designs, this traveling exhibition features visual art that is screenprinted on the periphery cloth surrounding the area of each stage at the Bacardi NH7 Weekender music festival. The exhibition will visit Shillong, Hyderabad, Pune, Kolkata, Puducherry, Mysore, Nagpur and Jaipur.
On a never-ending journey in search of an ideal place, we find joy and meaning along the way.
I have a new print in ‘SCAN.IT’, an exhibition curated by Gem Barton at Gallery40, Brighton, UK. This is an experimental project which looks at digital scanning as an alternative to photography. The exhibition is divided between three themes:
Week 1 – THE COW + THE FONT
Private View Thurs Aug 2nd, gallery open 10-5 Fr-3rd to Sun 5th
Week 2 – THE THING + THE DEAD
Private View Weds Aug 8th, gallery open 10-5 Thurs 9th to Sun 12th
Week 3 – THE DREAMER + THE NOSE
Private View Weds Aug 15th, gallery open 10-5 Thurs 16th to Sun 19th
Matt Lee’s Presence of Absence photographic series features a “decontextualised black shape” looming ominously over a Bangalore apartment block. The title of the work suggests the shape is some kind of infinite void of time and space, poised on the brink of causing unthinkable chaos and destruction. Or perhaps it’s a giant black obelisk serving as a memento mori constantly reminding us of our fleeting time on this mortal plane. Either way it’s very sinister, or I’m very paranoid.
