Virtual gallery experience

Make a visit to my gallery from the comfort of wherever you are!

With many thanks to the Immersive Business team of Falmouth University and the University of Exeter, I'm delighted to unveil my virtual art gallery.

The Immersive Business team has helped me to build a 3D experience of my work in VR (virtual reality), the web and mobile. The gallery was built as a result of the team walking me through various digital technologies that can be used to create, plan and simulate artworks, find ways to more comprehensively present them to galleries and customers, and to render sample exhibitions and projects.

The work I make is difficult to photograph and represent due to its scale, and my customer base is widely distributed, so we looked to find ways that I can give people a remote experience of my work in place of being able to visit an exhibition or make a studio visit.

We have been exploring 360 photography, Photogrammetry and Virtual Reality. These tools can support the entire creative process from the inception and planning stages, through to creating the art itself and presenting the end result.

By weaving these different technologies into my workflow I am able to save money, materials and time in the planning and experimentation stages (R&D) making the work more sustainable and affordable, and I can investigate a range of outputs before committing to the materials to make physical works.

My work investigates various three-dimensional and sculptural forms that you can be immersed in, when I make an exhibition or a work, much of the experience of that work is in the viewer being surrounded and physically up close to paintings and pieces that radiate a physically uplifting sensation that can be felt by the whole body and self. It therefore means that if you put on a virtual headset and step into a virtual world, the experience surrounds your senses. By having a virtual way in which to be in front of an artwork, there's a good replication of the experience of that piece when the in person experience isn't readily available. It's also possible to envisage exhibitions and curate different ones within the platform and even to take historic gallery exhibitions into the platform and archive them so that they can be experienced again and again.

An exhibition of painting and installation

Join me for my solo exhibition of new works created during my residency at Gray’s Wharf in September and October 2020, and of key works from the last 12 months.

On show at Gray’s Wharf Gallery from Tuesday 13th – Sunday 18th October 2020

My 2020 solo show is an exploration of my abstract painting into installation, an amplification of the experience of colours, layers and planes of the painting surface into three dimensionality and enhances the vibrance, brilliance and clarity of colour.

With the aim of using my residency at Gray’s Wharf to push the boundaries of my practice, I have used the space to stretch out and expand in size and concept. Through use of the light and airy space awarded by Gray’s to me, I have been given mental space, time, physical space and opportunity for reflection and deep focus.

Together with the team at Gray’s Wharf, we would like to invite you to visit, experience and be surrounded by new works produced during the residency, along with a few other key pieces from the last year which have been produced exploring the same key themes of luminosity, material, process, composition, technique and colour.

My new paintings explore a range of painting surfaces including natural canvas, acrylic and wood, at times creating three dimensional installation pieces which bring close focus to the material of the paint and the canvas as being ‘as one’.

Through the exploration of the properties and abilities of paints to their most clear and luminescent ability, by using fluorescents, pastels and clean, pure colours, I aim to feel uplifted by the paintings and to share that energising impact of colour with the viewer. The paintings seem to glow and emit light bringing the colour to its highest light emission, in parts casting light out and off the canvas, bringing the focus on colour both into the painting plane itself yet also to its’ surroundings, and also showing the ability of paint with material (particularly in relation to pieces made from acrylic) to itself create light.

The ‘canvas’ both interacts with the paint as a layer itself, and provides the physical layer on which the paint can sit and perform to a great degree. By seeing surface textures through sheer veils of paint or heavy elevations in the paint application, we are reminded of the process of painting and the physicality.

By bringing the paint layers out from the ‘canvas’ we are able to experience two dimensions in a three dimensional way, in opposition to enclosing the three dimensions into a two dimensional illusion. We feel and we experience the energy that has been given by the artist to the piece through the process of painting which brings the painting into reality and this is reflected back at us.

About my paintings

My paintings use fields of colour, transparencies and opacities that act as both a visual and an actual layer over one another, and which are layers upon the surface layer of the canvas.
