AboutKemistry Gallery is delighted to announce the first solo show by Daniel Eatock.
Entitled 'Editions & Originals' the show presents a collection of works and ideas
in a multitude of permutations, all linked by the belief in concept first.
Eatock is interested in connections between image and language, titles, punch
lines, miscommunication, subversions, open systems, contributions from others,
seriality, collections, discovery and inventing. Eatock makes conceptual things
that are resolved in a reductive, logical and objective way, and is especially
interested in the connection of the start and end points of a hand drawn circle.
Eatock's work responds to personal fascinations and the desire to invent, discover
and present. From an edition of prints made using every colour Pantone felt-tip
pen, to the ongoing Channel 4's Big Brother identity, all work is unified in its
conceptual, reductive, rational attempt at forming an answer or a conclusion. The
simple notion that work made without a brief is 'art' and work made in response
to a brief is 'design', does not fit, art and design cross, merge and collide
challenging preconceptions from each respective discipline.
