A nice positive stroke to end the year. The good people at AXISWEB have chosen to FEATURE my SANS A Chromaluxe print on aluminium as one of the highlights of the week (9-15 DEC 2019). The accumulation of small positives helps me continue to do what I do.

Four 24 inch square Chromaluxe die sublimation prints on aluminium, installed in my studio (fake) gallery. These high quality durable prints were sourced from my chosen print partner at: PRINT.REVAD.COM. As can be seen here, they are ready to exhibit. Maybe sometime in 2020 if the right opportunity presents itself. Otherwise, I am happy to have them in my own collection.

As I said in my earlier post “the chance of the odd sale is really just a side-effect that comes with the space”. If any funds are generated these are ploughed back into making new enquiries and outcomes. My practice is mostly exhibited in the virtual space of the web. The very occasional real-world exhibition is more of an accident than a goal. If a connection made leads to a worthwhile venue, then so be it. Making a sale is not the goal either, this is why I describe my art as FOR ME. But, this doesn’t preclude it from being FOR YOU too.

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.

Fourteen outcomes, mixed by pairing over seven days, via the installation of eighty four consecutive posts on Instagram. Exploring Instagram as an online exhibition space. Exploring how the space can be manipulated to harmonise different outcomes. Exploring the alternative perspectives available to the exhibition viewer. Exploring how these perspectives can be shared on other social platforms.

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!

A variation on the SQUARE SPIRAL STREAM (*), made as a pure Processing sketch. ”SQUARE’ as in the lines are drawn at a right angle to the previous line. So, rectangular in this 16 x 9 HDTV format installation. Each spiral is a single colour chosen at random. Each line is a random width (within predefined limits). Spirals are continuously drawn from the same point of origin. This random construction process is continuous making each view a new experience.

A stand-alone kinetic art display installation. Now mounted with a mobile stand. A RPI3B+, Samsung 43 inch HD TV, Processing, powered by two TV USB ports. Auto boots into the sketch. A plug and play mobile exhibition setup. Awaiting opportunity. Free standing, only needs a convenient single mains socket. Turn on at opening time. Turn off at closing time. No other intervention required.

* The SQUARE SPIRAL STREAM is a kinetic sketch, made with the p5js javascript processing library. The stream is installed at: XYZ.REVAD.COM, where you can experience your very own unique random stream of noisy colourful square spirals.

A variation on the RADICAL SPIRAL STREAM (*), made as a pure Processing sketch. Each spiral is constructed of discreet ellipses drawn in a spiral. Each ellipse is randomly equal in size to the previous ellipse or fractionally larger or smaller. Each spiral is made from a single randomly selected colour. Each spiral is drawn from the same point of origin. This random construction process is continuous making each view a new experience.

Artist proof sample prints (self printed). A diptych of reconfigured outcomes. Reconfigured extensions to the idea behind the LOVE THE NOISE OF LIFE acrylic on shredded receipts on panel diptych. The reconfiguration process used extracts detail from the noise of the original paint and allows for a super sized zoom and a very large maximum 60 x 45 inch print. The metal print option is the one to go for!
