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
reductio ad absurdum
for those who cannot do
NO THING IS TRUE EVERY THING IS PERMISSIBLE
