I DON'T EVEN LIKE MACAROONS
Supercollider pleased to announce its first exhibition of 2011 and its first in a series of exhibitions in partnership with FYCreatives*, Blackpool's creative industries centre.
For the inaugural exhibition in the programme Supercollider has invited Newcastle based emerging artists Andrew Maughan and Graeme Durant to present new and recent work spanning both painting and sculpture.
Working along seperate lines of enquiry both Maughan and Durant's work touches upon shared themes and for Supercollider, they will present an exhibition as a model to cross-examine their individual practices.
Andrew Maughan makes paintings that reflect on both the art world and current consumer culture. Employing anti-aesthetic strategies, Maughan uses a pallet of garish colours and pastel tones often presenting a visually complex and chaotic response to daily life.
Graeme Durant is a gatherer of redundant domestic and industrial objects. Through a process of re-cycling, improvisation and low-tech construction methodologies, he energises new sculptural propositions that reveal and invest new meaning in the original materials that were employed. Durant reorders a formalist sculptural vocabulary of form, volume and matter creating objects brimming with possibility.
Maughan and Durant are part of the Jambon artist collective a group of young emerging artist based in Newcastle.
