For their joint show at public house projects, Flora Parrott & Alan McQuillan have created new works in response to the lunar cycle, and it's affect on living organisms.
Contemplating the moon's constant presence, the artists are interested in making visible the pulsing, rhythmic forces that strongly affect our instinctive being.
Using William Blake as a totemic spectral presence, Alan McQuillan meditates on the
movement of the heavens, the planetary bodies and the mystery of those things which lie outside of us. Combining image, history and material with existing sites of emotion and
function, McQuillan delves into the originary moment of creativity and attempts to share
in the understanding we have of our made world, it's remnants and our excitement at
investigating the wild and unknown. Flora Parrott's sculptural configurations of instinctively chosen images and objects are arranged in a way that articulates a physical experience,
illustrating the draw of the moon, from the hollow, deafeningly silent ânew' moon to the immense tension of the âfull' moon.
Flora Parrott is represented by Tintype Gallery, London, and currently an artist in residence
at Wysing Arts Centre in Cambridgeshire. She is also a lecturer at Norwich University
College of Art, and graduated from the RCA in 2009.
Alan McQuillan is graduating from the RCA in 2012
