‘Hypotyposis’ is a new body of work specifically made for APOPHATIC PAREIDOLIA is a condition... Chavez-Dawson interest in the word hypotyposis which simply mean’s ‘word picturing’ and ‘creating the illusion of reality’ stems from his interest in the Rorschach; a controversial method of psychological clinical assessment based on a series of ink blots. The Rorschach has been a continuing motif in Chavez-Dawson’s work over the last decade – especially through his alter ego phase and Mind Projected Cinema.
More recently the Rorschach or archetypal inkblot have been incorporated into a series of live action paintings. These paintings aren’t random splodges, but words dripped in the artist’s own handwriting, in the case of this series of ‘Hypotyposis’ he’s asked for the favourite current word from a selection of artists, curators, critic’s and cultural figures, that include: David Shrigley, Charles Esche, Tom Morton, Stewart Home, Dave Beech, Eddie Berg, Gordon Cheung and Henrietta Thompson. From this series he presents a playful work in progress – featuring the original poster paint paintings, an animated film of these particular paintings and a selection of ‘laser etched prototypes’.
