In June, ArtisAnn gallery welcomes the critically acclaimed artist Gary Shaw, who will be showing new artworks in a stunning new solo exhibition.
The endless variety of patterns and colours has always appealed to Gary, as witnessed by his blocks of solid colour, his painting of jockey’s silks, the maritime flags and the geometrical shapes used to communicate with the viewer.
His work has been shown as far afield as America (with 2 Residencies in New York), Australia, Canada (Banff Residency), China, Indonesia, Germany and Spain, as well as shows throughout the British Isles.
Talking about this exhibition, Gary explains that
“The drawings for this exhibition are inspired from the book “Exercises in Style” by Raymond Queneau, in which he describes the same event but through different multiple viewpoints.
I am trying to visually articulate an idea or a thing that can be seen by multiple interpretations at once by using the actions of a flying drone and 3D holographic videos as a starting point.”
Although born in England, Gary Shaw lived and grew up in Adelaide where he studied for his first degree in fine art at the University of South Australia, where he had several group and solo shows before he moved to Belfast. He attained his Masters in Fine Art at the University of Ulster.
The exhibition runs at the ArtisAnn Gallery in Belfast from Thursday 7th June to Saturday 30th June 2018
