This weeks Link Gallery show exhibits the work of second year Fine Art student John Brindley.
In his artists’ statement John says:
“I see my work as experimental, exploring how the basic elements of colour, structure, line and texture can generate emotional impact and express energy in the work.
When starting a painting I do not hold a preconceived idea of what the work might become as it is important to me that the paint and the visceral application of the medium should eventually speak for itself.
The meaning in the work is subjective and varied, and can appear emotive, enigmatic, energetic and structural. It is generally developed with an eye to the aesthetic.
I am interested in the psycho-spiritual (secular) aspect of ‘creativity and the unconscious’, particularly as discussed in the books of Stephen Newton, Rudolf Arnheim and Anton Ehrenzweig. “
We also congratulate John on winning a Merit Award at the recent Stockport Artists Group Exhibition at Stockport Art Gallery. His winning painting can be seen at Stockport Art Gallery until January 2012.
