UNSTRUNG THEORY - Adrian Pritchard


Just what is the Universe made of? Adrian Pritchard investigates the nature of matter and the basic laws of physics. Pritchard is aiming to un-string these theories by using viscous substances which explores entropy and symmetry. In his still paintings the works express chaos systems like weather formations by repeating the process of pouring colours at a singular point on a flat canvas he works wet on wet until the puddles expand in mass. Adrian then spins the canvas as if panning for gold in order to simulate the spinning of an atmosphere. These paintings are then left to dry flat for many months, some develop thick membranes of skin which can bulge and ejaculate producing stalagmite formations. Other Paintings may Crack revealing different layers of mantle. As part of Adrian's ability to demonstrate these processes Adrian has developed an installation called string theory. This art work will be a live piece of art which develops and grows through out the course of the show. This work again uses precipitation to illustrate the vibration of strings as the viscous material stretches itself to the floor producing layers of formations over time. Too wet and the strings brake down back into an expanding pool of gloop.
