PA Redrawn-Line

Friday, 01 November 2013 00:00 Published in Holography

Title: PA Redrawn-Line

Date: 2013

Edition: Unique

Materials: 20 Reflection holograms on glass.

Size: Installation 100 x 20 cm (approx.)

Notes: Based on previous floor works using multiple holograms, this piece was first shown in the Drawology group exhibition at the Bonington Gallery, Nottingham, UK.

 

Each of the rectangular holograms are placed in a line, overlapping, covering and in a variety of orientations.

Illuminated from above by a strip of light directed vertically down onto the installation, the marks in each of the holograms appear and fade as an observer moves around the piece.

The marks (three different types) appear just above the glass plate on which they are recorded.

 

The Drawing Wall

Monday, 21 April 2008 01:00 Published in Group Exhibitions

2008

Bonington Gallery,  School of Art and Design, Nottingham Trent University, Nottingham, UK.

The Drawing Wall was an element within the Drawing Out exhibition held at the Bonington Gallery, Nottingham.

All staff in the school of Art and Design, from the Dean to technicians, receptionists, professors, lectures and visiting artists, were invited to submit a 'drawing' to this inclusive 'survey'.

170 works made up the Drawing Wall which was part of a curated exhibition at the Bonington and 1851 galleries. Drawing Out includes selected works using painting, computer animation, sculpture, kinetic construction, ceramics, video projection and text - all exploring the variety of interpretations of, and uses for, drawing.

Almost Nine. Pencil on paper with section cut away. 30 x 30 cm.

Almost Nine was produced specifically for the Drawing Wall by Andrew Pepper and was located in the upper right of the collection.

"When I was a child I used to draw all the time. People told me I was 'good' and should be an artist. The things I drew looked like the things I saw - they were accurate reproductions. A record of an observation. The more accurate they were the more 'impressive' people found them and the less interesting they were for me.

Today drawing is much more about working through an idea, navigating a thought, planning something, placement - a precursor to making. Something beyond a subconscious doodle and not quite accurate enough to 'be anything'.

Almost Nine is a collection of bounded surfaces - edges separating one visual space from another. Just like the much larger Drawing Wall itself, multiple elements are placed next to each other. The only specification for submitting a drawing for the wall was that it should occupy a 30 x 30 cm piece of paper. All the same but all very different once they had been drawn on.

The 9 rectangles anticipated the grid-like installation of the Drawing Wall with the content of the last drawn boundary removed - cut away to reveal the space beneath. That space fascinates me."

Making Marks

Thursday, 04 September 2008 01:00 Published in Group Exhibitions

2008

Hand and Heart Gallery, Nottingham

A group exhibition, curated by Aaron Juneau, centered on the notion of "making marks" or 'mark making' in its broadest sense.

From the early Palaeolithic era and the very dawn of mankind, human beings have had an innate compulsion to externalise their thoughts and feelings, to pause and reflect on the past and present or prophetically envisage the future by way of creating images or simply producing visual or audible gestures.

A phenomenon that has continually diversified throughout history, from the first marks of humankind found deep within the Lascaux caves of Southern France to improvised music as a form of expressionistic sound drawing, ‘making marks’ has expanded to encompass every artistic medium and has been firmly established as a crucial provisional process in the formulation of all creative ventures. It might be said that much of an artists work goes unseen, becoming relegated to the recesses of the studio space. However, perhaps it is this unseen work that is pivotal to the constitution of all masterworks; an essential formative process, rooted in irresolution yet loaded with latent possibility.

The show encompasses many practicing visual artists including those within artist’s collectives in Nottingham and the surrounding areas with artist’s submissions from around the country. Work includes: textual, drawn, scrawled or scribbled, painted, photographed, filmed or videoed, recorded, spoken and performed.
