'Delineating Dreams' is Kovet.Art's inaugural online VR exhibition, which launched on 10th June 2020. It includes work by eight artists who are recent graduates of leading British art schools and comprise Kovet.Art's debut artist roster. This exhibition features three works on paper of mine, 'Metallic Gestures VII, IX and X', all of which are carborundum embossings with metallic chine-collé that I made and editioned at East London Printmakers. Please find more information on this exhibition below:
"The contemporary artworks featured move from figuration to abstraction with rich, dream-like representations that reveal a visual spectrum that is both conscious and subconscious. A strong, performative element comes across in gestures, juxtapositions and arrangements. In both the human body and the natural landscape, the known and familiar come up against idiosyncratic interpretations that are often strange and unsettling. Intensely subjective and often imbued with the qualities of Surrealism, the exhibition features work ranging from painting and printmaking to photography. By manipulating the organic world these artists make us reconsider our current environments and the emotional impact they possess. The exhibition aims to inspire, inviting us to dream of a new future, transcending the emotions and limitations of the pandemic into a new reality."
"Kristy M Chan and Max Gimson’s paintings investigate liminal spaces that are part of everyday life, visually interpreting visions and hallucinations. They make powerful and relevant commentary on domesticity and social constructs. Tom Faber and Giovanna Petrocchi’s constructed landscapes invoke dystopian and utopian realities by fragmenting and reformulating the world around us. Process, meanwhile, is central to Janet Waring Rago and Christopher Pearson’s work, enticing the viewer with ethereal surface qualities that examine the concept of time and gesture. Both artists seek to create a parallel between the field of action in three-dimensional space and its translation to the singular plane. A distinctive, performative element is present in the work of Candice Jewell and Loreal Prystaj: using strong juxtapositions and arrangements, the artists re-examine activism around identity constructions and the human gaze."
