Callum Moncrieff’s ‘Recent Works’ is a chronological numbered series inspired and influenced by an exaggerated awareness of the visual world that is fed from architecture, painting, sculpture, conversations, materials and the position of ordinary things.
When asked to comment on the nature of titling his work (they’re all Untitled), Callum states “A title is an investment of what follows. It is not a thing that is there at the time of making. It can falsify the experience of making. I do not intend to use contrived titles such as ‘blasted tree’. If I want to paint a blasted tree then I will do that.”
At Cornerstone Gallery until Friday March 24th 2006
