New Work - Mixed Medium
Brian Griffiths & Frank Kent - Frank Dot & Brian Oval
A show of key AIR SIGNS photographs that feature round things, or things getting around. Frank, catch that professional standard frisbee.
AIR SIGNS are an ongoing series of sculptural works that are presented as photographs. Frank and Brian gather materials from their studio, and occasionally, from the artists’ wider daily lives. Objects are displayed, positioned, and pressed into action within a wobbly cube. Brian, on your head.
This approach values lightness, some chance encounters and codified conversations. It hopes to sketch something of experiencing the world through its objects, something untidy to be felt and thought.
Brian Griffiths and Frank Kent both studied painting, became sculptors, and just now, are making photographs. Together they make a friendly return to the flatness of the image. They met at the Royal Academy Schools in London.
AIR SIGNS have been recently exhibited at the Van Gogh House, London (2021); Karsten Schubert Gallery, London (2020); Galeria Luisa Strina, São Paulo (2019). AIR SIGNS are in private collections in the UK, Europe, Brazil and USA.
