The concept for the exhibition stemmed from conversations about spatial relations in the digital age, at a time in which space has been reconfigured and expanded by new technologies. A group of artists interested in the notion of Polyspace came together to discuss how we understand and express these developments. Conversations throughout Summer 2016 drifted between subjects such as Bitcoin, internet art, ontology, the physical presence of the internet, and strangely even Kate Bush music videos.
The artists examine the fluidity between objects, bodies and spaces, that through digital technologies stretch and alter our perceptions of ‘real’ environments. The works allude to an artistic process as collaboration between artist and technology. Polyspace was conceived as a neologism, which best epitomises the modern approach of working with varied spaces as a subject matter. These spaces explore technology (digital), architecture (urban) and nature (rural). The exhibition features mixed media installation, prints, sculpture and internet-enabled sound and video art.
Polyspace is kindly supported by Arts Council England

What’s my Methodology Again? – A comical spoken word appropriation of a ‘90s pop punk classic. This two minute thirty interpretation tells the cautionary tale of being too contemporary to study art history.
PHUNNY: (slang) (adj) something funny but phoney. /// Put some mirth into your everyday with two hilarious twenty minute episodes of canned comedy laughter without dialogue. /// Discover renewed humour in your daily actions and live your own phunny sitcom ///

New work on show in Newcastle-upon-Tyne this summer at Quilliam Brothers Tea House gallery. The work is a part of group show Tea-Total organised by a fine artist collective named Run of the Mill. My work is titled ‘What Has Gainsborough Done For You Lately?’(2013) and examines my continual fascination with the devices inherent in parameters between art and it’s histories.
Tee-Total is open 17 – 30 August. Get yourself along and enjoy some of the great selection of teas on offer.
Entrance is free. Tea is reasonably priced and tasty.
See you. See me soon.
