Here is an image of a recent installation submission to a festival in Wales, my concept was to create a piece of work on these gates throughout the festival - making them into points of interest and spaces festival goers would be more inclined to stop and spend time with.
I have had an idea bubbling for a while now relating to the use of holograms, and the application of them in my work.
I am really interested in the filmic quality of this material, but am still in the middle of developing it, but I liked the colour in the image so thought I'd post it to get the work going.
The work I intend to make is potentially going to be an idea I want to call pool. Using lintographs I want to build up a surface of holograms that will react and move as the audience walks towards or past the work, creating small abstract movement and ripples to mimic those seen as you walk past a pond or puddle.
I decided a few weeks back to take images of my analog tv, while breaking up the tv signal by experimenting with moving the aerial in different locations. The result was something I've seen before, but I liked the images I saw so much I thought I really needed to share them on here.
I sometimes get slightly worn out using so many ism's when in conversation about art history and movements, so in response to this I have made some new ideas for some new "artisms" to add the the mountain of other uses of the suffix.
I've also posted a downloadable A4 poster, which you can customise with your own take on ism's. Just click the bottom image to go and download your poster.
In a couple of new pieces of painting I started this week, I have been working further into the concepts I have attached to Neologism (replacing the conventional textual neologism with that of found images)
The works below have a split persona, bringing different moments of painting into the same images. The work ties slow, planned pattern making and graphic imagery to quick, thick mark making.
I am trying to develop a series of paintings that have a destructive style to them, appearing as if the time consuming underpainting has been toyed with by brutish gestural abstraction painting, and is subsequently becoming robbed of its own surface.
A neologism ( /niːˈɒlədʒɪzəm/; from Greek νέο- (néo-), meaning "new", and λόγος (lógos), meaning "speech, utterance") is a newly coined term, word, or phrase, that may be in the process of entering common use, but has not yet been accepted into mainstream language. Neologisms are often directly attributable to a specific person, publication, period, or event. Neolexia (Greek: a "new word", or the act of creating a new word) is a fully equivalent term.
In psychiatry, the term neologism is used to describe the use of words that have meaning only to the person who uses them, independent of their common meaning. This is considered normal in children, but a symptom of thought disorder (indicative of a psychotic mental illness, such as schizophrenia) in adults. People with autism also may create neologisms. Additionally, use of neologisms may be related to aphasia acquired after brain damage resulting from a stroke or head injury.
In theology, a neologism is a relatively new doctrine (for example, Transcendentalism). In this sense, a neologist is one who proposes either a new doctrine or a new interpretation of source material such as religious texts.
