Machine Aesthetic

I am showing in a really interesting touring exhibition, Machine Aesthetic, curated by artists, Simón Grannell and Eric Butcher. The exhibitions responds to contemporary fine art practices that "engages with the notion of mechanisation in a sophisticated range of ways; from artists who exploit the materials, processes and techniques of machine production, incorporating machined materials into their work, to those who do not engage physically with machines at all, but adopt a mechanised methodology in the process of manufacture, disciplining their minds and bodies to behave like machines." 

The exhibition opens at Gallery North in Newcastle with a private view on Monday 9th December and carrying on until 30th January before moving on to Arts university Bournemouth, University of Lincoln, Norwich University of the Arts and Transition Gallery, London through 2014. I will be showing The Jump, a painted version of Chris Marker's classic short film, La Jetee. Other artists in the show include Emma Hart, Dan Hays, Michael Roberts, Natasha Kidd andTim Knowles.
