The classic blue and white wares of Imperial Chinese porcelain are infamously iconic, this global luxury phenomenon and has been admired, imitated, adapted and perpetually translated into every culture to which it arrives. My Cobalt Blue’s reinterprets these classic ‘goods’ into a new mode of expression.
Midnight on Thrill Hill is a collection of my recent kinetic sculptures and abstract acrylic paintings. My sculptures are born from a state of naive curiosity. I surround myself with materials that interest me, and I play with them. When I stumble across an idea or motion that creates energised focus, I surrender to it.
Jordan Mitchell-Fletcher’s work is engaged with sculpture as a process-led, open-ended practice. Interested in the idea of materiality as encompassing a conglomerate of relations in which matter is modified by time, change and process, and working with responsive materials, the intention is to construct a temporal arc in which the presentation is just a moment in the timeline of the work.
So near seeks to combine James’ research interests of sacred art and contemporary non-representative art making, in the hope of offering small moments of revelation and dissipation in small abstract icons.
With the detonation of the first nuclear weapon on July 16, 1945, we irreversibly entered the nuclear age. When people think about our shared nuclear future today, they tend to employ one of two, competing, narratives. In one vision we humans—and perhaps everything—is violated and dies. In the other, life thrives because Earth is either in a state of nuclear peace or is denuclearized. This project is curated by N.A.J. Taylor
