A short video highlighting the unique painting method of Baltimore-based artist, Greg Minah.
Greg Minah creates his abstract paintings by pouring thinned out acrylic paint onto the canvas and then tilting and turning the stretcher to precisely control the flow of the medium. Often, a layer is partially removed with pressurized water before it has a chance to completely cure, leaving only the outline of the poured paint and revealing the multi-layered construction of the work. This method of working might best be described as a collaboration between artist and material. The result is a lyrical moment suspended in time but the significance remains fluid as it relies entirely on the encounter with the viewer.
This video was shot with a Sony NEX-3 digital camera and a (very old) tripod. The music was made entirely by playing virtual instruments on an iPad and mixing the tracks using the GarageBand app. Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum was used to edit the footage.
Anthony White is an Australian artist based in Paris, France. In this latest body of work, 'Scratching the Surface', which White created while on a residencey in Leipzig, Germany in early 2011, the artist explores notions of colour, tension between materials and the abstract concept of space and form. Inspiration comes both from the heritage of German expressive abstraction movement of the early 20th century, White's Australian background feeds into the choice of pallette, anchored by his present influence of the streetscapes of Paris.
Relying on a emotive response to his surroundings provides White with a veritable smorgasboard of material, the titles of the works hint at influences that inspire him to create, or comment on the world in which the artist finds himself inhabiting.
Anthony White is a graduate of the National Art School, Sydney and has exhibitied in 2011 in London and Hong Kong. This is his second solo exhibition with Iain Dawson Gallery.
