Koncrete’s other half, Rachel Ann Stevenson joins Reload Gallery for Affordable Art Fair with “From Dust” sculptures. Darkness, hidden message, interpret “From Dust” how you want to interpret. All we did is lift our jaw from the floor when saw “From Dust” that mysterious feel, with hints of the street culture. Cold Cast Poly Stone from SPLICE, There are two black on black two pink/black one teal/black and one yellow/black of “From Dust” standing at 41cm x 10cm x 7cm ain’t no small fry. If you are lucky to be heading to Reload Gallery for Affordable Art Fair make sure you check out these in person.
In my work I try to capture the impossible the swirling mist of a dreamers mind, as artists we are daydreamers and our business is capturing the impossible, holding on to it and showing it to the world.
But even as we think we have a firm grip, the dream shifts and changes due to each new experience. So as we prepare to project our perfect daydream on to a canvas or thought clay it will take a mighty shift as we then influence and distort our ideal with our clumsy mark making, lets say the idea is represented by a wet oil painting each time we have a new experience we smear our hands from one corner of the canvas to the other distorting our perfect image but seeing new images within the distortion that excite us as before so by the time the painting or sculpture is complete it is nothing like our original image, I believe this is why artist visit the same themes over and over as it is almost impossible to capture our own absorbing and beguiling thoughts, it’s like trying to catch mist with a net, this is what keeps me up through the night leaping through the swirling fog of my unconscious mind with a net and a bucket, determined to return home with the impossible silence of these part imagined part remembered places – Rachel Ann Stevenson.
Hopefully, in the near future we can own a smaller version of” From Dust” for all you high rollers, https://www.reloadgallery.com/ have a selection.
Reload gallery will be in attendance at the 2018 Battersea Affordable Art Fair from 18th – 21st October. https://www.reloadgallery.com/
