Away from the white noise of the capitals commercial pressures, quiet contemplatory spaces exist where creative thinking can develop afresh and art can ‘brew’, like wines forming their flavours. On the periphery new images emerge and trans-dimensional oscillations manifest.
Having recently moved his studio out of London in search of space, light and silence, Hang Show represents a selection of new works on paper by Neil Taylor.
Developed in the stillness of his studio fresh marks and process’s are unearthed, sprung to life through repetition, the artist no longer in control of details. Taylors new works are delicate, poetic and transcendent, displaying a dynamic physical energy and an unashamed love for the materiality and process’s of printing and painting.
Hang Show & Non Verbal Gabfest are part of the Artlicks Weekend taking place across London from the 4th - 7th October 2018.
Non Verbal Gabfest
An experimental discussion, around art, education, explicit memory and haptic feedback
Sunday 7th October 2018. 2.00 - 5.00pm (starting 2.00pm prompt)
A chance to collectively explore ideas that surround materiality and the tactile relationship we have with the world around us. We are currently witnessing a ‘post studio’ art world emerge, as pressures on space force other artists from the capital. Internet and digital production systems are beginning to dominate material based art ‘objects’.
What would the future look like if all art were manufactured by machines? Will artists become solely curators and art directors of their own ideas, removed from the tactile creation of the art object, and how does this affect those unexpected outcomes that make the creative process so exciting. At a time when many other industries, such as bread, cheese and beer, which have long been highly mechanised, begin to return to the hand crafted artisanal item art seems to be traveling in the opposite direction.
Throughout the afternoon we hope to question if this is the desired direction art should take or simply the consequences of economic pressures and a seismic shift within our educational bias? Is this what society needs or wants, and more importantly is it what artists want?
