A diptych of 12 x 16 inch Chromaluxe die sublimation prints, on aluminium. These should be presented in the same space, but not necessarily side-by-side. Here they are installed near a corner in the room. Opposite walls would make a visual connection across the room.
Whatever the medium, my intent is to draw. I am showing here, a number of current and recent enquiries, with each enquiry recorded in my studio space. An eclectic mix of subject, material, and technique. Each idea feeds back to influence what comes next. This mix of current and recent enquiry outcomes will continue (on social media) between now and the end of ARTWEEKS in May. See: https://contact.revad.com for social media links.
I have contributed four prints and an online animation to this ongoing international project.
OXONARTWEEKS is an installation of REVADXYZ animations and derived prints. Six lines of enquiry are explored: WINGS FOR FREEDOM, RADICAL LINE STREAM ONE, BATTLE OF IDEAS, FOR COVIMETRY, DUAL SPIRAL STREAM, and RADICAL SPIRAL STREAM. Each component outcome is also available as an individual print, as wall art and on a selection of products.

*** THIS CONCEPT FOR ARTWEEKS HAS SINCE BEEN REPLACED.
A paper plane has been constructed and sent to Brazil for inclusion in the OFF HOME – WINGS FOR FREEDOM international exhibition. The skin of the plane is derived from my FREEDOM STREAM animation. The same skin was printed to both sides of a sheet of 50gsm office paper and then folded into the paper plane.
My print shop at REVAD.PIXELS.COM has been pruned back to a small selection of prints from current projects. A review suggested it is not a viable space to act as a print archive. Too much investment in time required to keep it current. This is how the shop front looks today.
Behind the shop front, you will find four public collections. The number of available prints has dropped, from a peak of 700+, to around 20. As ever, if you see anything of mine anywhere and would like a print, get in touch via the contact page at REVAD.COM.
I am honoured to have my FOR COVIMETRY outcomes represented in this exhibition in Poland. The project is curated by Mark Starel. This recording was made for a Polish TV channel. To have my online animation featured, both in the exhibition and this recording, has made for a pleasant end to a challenging year.
A virtual exhibition, featuring a never ending contemporary algorithmic animation.
In BATTLE OF IDEAS, I utilise the virtual materials of the World Wide Web to investigate the potential for chaos when one idea competes with another for supremacy. The foundation for the coding of this particular battle was taken from the continuing agitation between groups wanting to leave or remain in the European Union. As usual, the foundation was just the beginning, with the outcome earning its own right to exist as an algorithmic abstract artwork. The geometric building blocks used are the elipse, the spiral and the square. The cypher used is my own COLOUR ALPHABET.
