Orange Country is a vibrant arts and skateboarding collective. Made up of Charlie Logan, Lloyd Tate, Murry Ekundayo, Edward Pooley and Marlon Francis, each of us having different artistic traits ranging from painting, photography, graphic art, printing, collage and videography.

About

Charlie Logan - Canvas, Acrylic, Spray paint and Posca are used to create a representation of my own experiences; constantly on surveillance, the cameras suggest the idea of constantly being watched. The lines give the form to the imagery- inspired by Michael Craig Martin and Patrick Caulfield. Flat blocks of colour add impact to the graphic images. Stencils have been used to give a softer edge.

Lloyd Tate - My paintings push emotion and communication through shape, contrast and colour with the off subject of basic figuration in everyday objects. Some of my biggest influences are Frank Stella and Jonathan Lasker.

 

Murry Ekundayo - I would describe my art as a carthatic process i like to be versatile working with a wide range of mediums. my primary materials are collected objects I use the items as my canvas to create intimacy inspired by Robert Rauschenbergs combines and the Dadaist perspective on art.

 

Edward Pooley - FAN - this piece is my attempt to make artwork within the institutional space provide to me by the university. I have no studio. My home has become my studio due to this lack, from the institution.

a ready_made object, (FAN) and a piece of backdrop (PAPER); segregating the corner of this square room, a clinical square space is opened up into a hope for expression. The (FAN) has no chance to express, its automation takes its path onwards into a continuum cycle of singular line over a backdrop witch provides the anti-insititional curve created in the corner of a room; the room that has become “the stand in” for a studio. My aim is to question all hope of “art” within a institution, a institution that is so focused on the ticking of “boxes” that gain my expression nothing but depressive cycles of relapse. Lack of expression wether the artwork is providing this meaning or not providing the meaning is the crux of trying to figure where i lye in this turmoil of artistic expression What is a studio? What is a home? Why is a institution fundamentally against everything i feel? Why do i take pleasure in the automated version of my expressive lack in this institution? How can i make new space though this articulation of the lack of ideal? Where do you, the viewer situate into this automated place in witch i come from? what is it to be a artist with out comfort of contemplation? WHY? It's pretty lengthy

 

Marlon Francis - Focusing mainly on photography and videography, I like to present my arts as a collection. My genre's are mainly lifestyle, skateboarding and fashion. I like to document people and how they express themselves. I like the idea of people being individuals, everyone having something that express what they are, whether its through fashion, hobbies or their lifestyle. My piece is based on memories and the people I share them with, I have put pictures that all have an individual story and that are good times for me to remember, although this piece may be quite personal My biggest inspirations are Viktor Vauthier, Petra Collins and Ben Chadourne.
