New Works by Phil Constable
THE LOWRY HOTEL | 50 DEARMAN'S PLACE | CHAPEL STREET | MANCHESTER | M3 5LH
We are super excited to announce our latest exhibition collaboration with artist and printmaker Phil Constable.
"After a visit to his studio back in October, I was blown away by the beauty and diversity of Phil's art within the different processes he uses. His work catches your eye and holds your attention as you explore the layers of imagery, symbols and mark making. His use of reflective materials including glass and gilding techniques is extremely enticing as your own reflection becomes part of the work." Claire Turner CCA
Artist and printmaker Phil Constable works by layering images via screen print, utilising half-tone photography, symbols, mark making with gold and silver gilding on various surfaces including paper, board, and glass.
Documenting industrial sites and spaces, often focusing on trace images created by construction markings and/or graffiti that has often been covered or ‘painted out’ poorly. Phil finds these images and incorporates them as part of a readymade dialogue between the mediums of the mechanically reproduced image and the brush.
Multi-layered imagery encourages the viewer to visually explore the surface, the texture, and depth within the work echoing time and memory.
Having worked through the medium of printing and drawing on glass for sometime, the process of working backwards relates to the mapping of thoughts then sealing them by the encapsulation of silvering. When viewed as a finished piece, the distorted reflection of the silvering creates tension, an interaction between the viewer and negative space.
