Yesterday evening I attended an art exhibition previews at ArtsPost.
Abstract work by Liam Bourton similar to Sol LeWitt's 70s wall drawings, example below:
Highlight: learning a little about the artist's exacting methodology, and finding a favourite shade of orange that particularly stood out.
Please Do Touch
I decided to attend these three exhibition openings mainly due to having met this artist a few years ago - a highly accomplished individual. Yaniv's collection raises awareness about global warming. The tactile installations explores themes of climate change, water quality, oceanic ecological systems, poverty and sustainable cities.
Highlight: Being able to touch the artwork(!) and was especially impressed and inspired by one of the pieces - it would work perfectly as a textile surface pattern repeat!
A Product of Nature
I was fortunate enough to get the opportunity to talk to the artist and learned that he is from a Welsh background and working with stone masonry is a family thing for him.
Highlight: finding out about the inspiration behind the work after speaking to the artist.
