Until Friday 26 February 2016
This latest Cornerstone Gallery exhibition features artists that work often but not exclusively in digital media. The artists included regularly originate work using lo tech and found materials or take inspiration from the everyday and commonplace. Highly technical digital processes are also employed as a means of representation. These artists appear comfortable using both the everyday and physical ‘stuff’ as signifier, as well as experimenting with digitally manipulated materials.
David Dipre studied Fine Art at University of Central Lancashire and Camberwell College, London. He is a London based artist.
David paints directly onto found materials as well as producing sound pieces and short films. His work is an attempt to push further the language of painting by adopting processes that disrupt a straightforward depiction of a traditional subject matter. The figure and the face are the main focus of David’s work and David was featured in the John Moores Painting Prize, Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool in 2012.
Jemma Egan was born in Liverpool and is currently living and working in London. Jemma studied BA Fine Art at Liverpool School of Art and Design in 2005 and gained an MA in Sculpture from Royal College of Art, London in 2015.
Jemma produces animations using found eBay images which are accompanied by body made sounds such as hand claps, body shove and slaps. The images are intended to lose a sense of scale and promise the prospective consumer much more than the low grade and cheap object can deliver. Other work in this exhibition includes an enlarged version of a found McDonald’s coffee cup lid which has been squashed and formed into a face. It is then 3Dscanned from the original squashed lid and then 3D printed for bronze cast.
Choterina Freer studied Fine Art at Central Saint Martins College of Art, The Royal College of Art (Animation) and gained an MFA Fine Art (Distinction) from Goldsmiths College, University of London in 2012.
Choterina is a London based artist. Her videos are material manipulations of our digital environment; she composites taken and found footage, CGI animations, and hand-drawn graphics to examine and define a new digital social realism.
