PAPER PLANE CONSTRUCTION © REVAD David Riley

A paper plane has been constructed and sent to Brazil for inclusion in the OFF HOME – WINGS FOR FREEDOM international exhibition. The skin of the plane is derived from my FREEDOM STREAM animation. The same skin was printed to both sides of a sheet of 50gsm office paper and then folded into the paper plane.

The exhibition is due to open in March 2021. I will add links when available.

COVIMETRY PREMIERE

  • 2020
  • exhibition

I am honoured to have my FOR COVIMETRY outcomes represented in this exhibition in Poland. The project is curated by Mark Starel. This recording was made for a Polish TV channel. To have my online animation featured, both in the exhibition and this recording, has made for a pleasant end to a challenging year.

The face mask is used here as a symbol of our times. No masks are being sewn and none coloured by these outcomes. The mask outline is an artistic device and nothing more.

A lot of effort has gone into creating and curating this space. I treat it as an online exhibition space. The chance of the odd sale is really just a side-effect that comes with the space. Every little helps though. I am more interested in how these different lines of enquiry sit together in the space, how I can introduce new work and cycle out those outcomes that have served their time. It never sits still for very long. Everything is transient.

A screen grab showing the home page of this virtual exhibition of open edition prints. A snapshot as-of 2019-08-29. As I write there are thirty outcomes available to print and two advertising related cards. There is also a discount code which can be used to obtain a substantial discount (while it remains operative). The size and substrate is entirely your choice, but I do recommend the metal print option for all of these outcomes, and the larger the better. As ever, my current print partner web site can be reached via the forwarding URL: http://print.revad.com. If you don’t want to buy, you can still enjoy the view!

MODERNIST COIN WASH

Three photo collages, recording outcomes from three Modernist Coin Wash events. Each coin wash was organised and run by the artists Lindall Pearce and Marion Piper at Angelika Studios (now Work Hall). They were very enjoyable creative experiences.
