Steve Gent brings us a long awaited showing of his unique work with static electricity.
His paintings, using bitumen onto fine stretched plastic, are a paradox. The artist is still and the piece draws itself. The industrial medium is newly seen, beautiful on the clinical surfaces, which themselves are engineered to encourage a new and active viewpoint.
These works liquefy the boundary between artist and subject, a melding of science and art. This is nature.
The private view will include a projection of the process and will offer drinks and light refreshments.
