Private View: 3rd April
VITAL EXCESS features new works by Michael Evans and Ghost on the Wire Artist Anne Robinson, both engaged with questions of consciousness, affect and temporality and working between painting and the moving image. Their works collide here on shifting boundaries of digital/analogue, figural/abstract and practice/theory….away from the monotonous tick of capital, our sensory perceptions of time, are vertiginous and uncanny … now and then, inside and out … we feel time differently.
Anne Robinson’s multi-disciplinary practice is concerned with the perception and politics of time, working experimentally with duration, frame, exposure, paint surface and performance. She has exhibited nationally and internationally and curating work includes Time, Flesh and Nerve and One More Time.
Michael Evans’ work explores perceptions of time, space and the shifting sense of self, encountered when contemporary abstract painting enters into dialogue with digital imaging. He has shown in the UK and internationally and publications include: Out of Nothing: Painting and Spirituality.
Evans and Robinson both completed Practice-led PhDs at CASS.
The exhibition is curated by the artist Judith Tucker. It is open from 4th-13th April, 12noon -6.00pm except Sunday in the Bank Gallery at Cass and there will be an artists’ talk on Friday 4th, at 1.00pm with curator Judith Tucker.
