Week 1 :: FMP Primary Research :: White Cube

The White cube showcased Darren Almonds abstract collection named Time Will Tell featuring various pieces displaying the idea of time. Almond uses different media including concrete based mineral paint, acrylic gel on mirror, and conductive metal leaf to depict how the number featured throughout his pieces are a common factor in human culture. The distortion of these pieces to represent the disruption each piece natural setting. Each piece features a minimal aesthetic covering a large canvas which displayed the concept of each image effectively and made the overall presence of his exhibition engaging and approachable. Using multi- media and large-scale canvas can be carried through onto my own pieces in regard to the multi-faceted content that is put in my FMP magazine.

Christine Ay Tjoe is another featured Artist that was presenting their work at the White Cube. Work under ‘Black, kcalB, Black, kcalB’ were created using multimedia presented on large scale and smaller scale canvas, similar to Almonds. Tjoe’s pieces are a representation of the possibility of living with darkness inside an individual’s sub conscious. Using oil paintings and aluminium plates, Tjoe creates conceptual imagery that captivates the audience through provoking intensive thought and consideration. The installations explore the integration of darkness into human nature, which I feel is relative to the idea in which I will manifest my publication from. Sustainability and consumption, specifically waste is considered as second nature in modern society.
