Digital.Material : Paintings, Sculpture and Prints.
Garth Lewis and Tom Lomax
DIGITAL.MATERIAL is the first in-depth exhibition of works that represent nearly a decade of research and experiment with digital media in relation to painting and sculpture. Garth Lewis applies paint to ink-jet printed canvases; Tom Lomax produces sculptures that are three dimensional, digital prints.
Garth Lewis incorporates ink-jet printing, direct printing and hand painting in the same picture by applying acrylic paint to fabric that has been printed with his own computer-generated compositions. The dynamics of digital imaging represent a challenge to the slow changing character of paintings that are intimate, hands-on and individually experienced.
Tom Lomax âs sculptures are conjured up on the computer screen and involve visual relationships that would be unlikely inventions with traditional studio tools. At the same time the computer generated models are translated from areas of geometric fantasy to the tangible world of material things. The results are emphatically visual, exuberantly polychrome and free from the gravity and poise of hand-made sculptural form.
Digital Material runs at the APT Gallery from the 5th to the 21st of April 2013, the artists will be in the gallery to discuss their work during the exhibition period.
An illustrated catalogue is published to accompany this exhibition.
