Graham Asker presents an exciting new body of work for his first solo show. Asker's work explores aspects and notions of visual perception. He is interested in the mind's ability to take a 2D image and build a three dimensional vision of the world surrounding us. His long-term investigation utilises orthographic projection, a technique used by architects and engineers to define a solid form on a flat plane. While investigating the workings of orthology, Asker continues to explore a merging between fine art practices ' utilising photography, painting, computer graphics and sculpture, he creates multi-dimensional works to produce Matchbox size realities. The work requires an intense interaction with the viewer, drawing the viewer in and challenging him to resolve the ambiguities which inevitably evolve from this process. Asker's self representation is a recurring theme throughout his work and uses himself as the subject in his three dimensional vision.
Graham has invited several artists from his BA course to join him for the exhibition and will produce work resonating around his theme. The invited artists will have their work displayed in the basement gallery.
