Ken Artspace presents Someone I Know, a solo exhibition of watercolour heads by Andrew Carnie.


These watercolours are an ongoing project, something Carnie has been completing regularly, but only recently presented to the public. As he explains: "If you 'see' and try to 'understand' the world through images, you need to make them".

Carnie is best known for his large-scale video projection works, based on a practice of working with scientists on topics such as heart transplants, brain implants, neurology, and immunology. These video-projection pieces take as long as six months to a year to  be ready for exhibition. As in such works as Atlas: There and Here (2012) currently touring in the exhibition, Brains(s) in Spain, or Blue Matter (2020), shown recently at the Kunsthal Charlotteborg, Copenhagen.

To counter this he has developed a parallel approach, producing small 'quicker to realise' watercolours, making them at a rate of 4 or 5 a week. This he does alongside creating the larger-scale video pieces to make something material and get him through, what can be, very monotonous periods of editing on the computer.

The watercolours have become more and more important to him, spreading and growing in a variety of ways as an art practice should. They now inform many parts of his practice, which as well as the video installations include oil paintings, sculptures and artist's books.
