ABSTRACT GOZO – Now Showing

DESCRIPTION

This is lenswork by English artist, Jamie F, who maps the Gozitan coast with the eyes of a painter combined with the sharp focus of a traditional camerawork. He brings to light the quality behind the ordinary, uncovering the curves and angles of pre-cognitive experience. This exhibition is a celebration of the underlying mystery that is the soul of the island of Gozo.

 ABOUT THE ARTIST

Jamie F, from Newcastle, England, retreats to the island of Gozo, where he rediscovered his oeuvre after many barren years in the wilderness. Gozo provides him with the vital tranquility which allows access to the deep seated beauty inherent in the world.

 ARTIST MANIFESTO: “On A Spinning Rock Even Stop Never Stops

Artists are the archaeologists of the future tense

extracting meaning from the very edges of reality

art is an existential struggle

with that pernicious conformity

which bears the hallmarks of control

all artists are to be

theorized into submission

if they resist they are to be

excommunicated and ignored

aesthetic expression versus

false-arts

reductio ad absurdum

for those who cannot do

teach

NO THING IS TRUE EVERY THING IS PERMISSIBLE
