Prism Contemporary - John Tiney Exhibition
Dates: 20 Nov 2020 - 12 Dec 2020
If you’re a fan of culture and the arts in general you’ll be missing your regular fix of art exhibitions and galleries. Like many things this year it has been severely neglected and many artists work isn’t getting the recognition it so deservedly needs. Thankfully, there is an alternative.
As many of us have become accustomed to the online world many artists are finding this an excellent viewing platform to showcase their work.
Currently available online from now until Saturday 12th December 2020 is ‘Prism Contemporary - John Tiney Exhibition’.
John’s new body of work is entitled ‘ ‘My Reality, Your Reality, It’s Reality and Shirts’, accompanied by a selection of the artists paintings.
A series of references are combined together to create a unique piece of work. These include the following:-
- T-shirt graphics
- Disney scenery
- Paint smears
- Corporate logos
- ‘How to draw guides’
- Skateboard stickers
- Info graphics
- Pop culture references
- Coffee beans
- Tea cups
- Beer cans
- Neon colours spill forwards
Captured brilliantly in paint and expressed skilfully through a curious but sympathetic blend of gestural, representational, printed and graphic mark-making.
John has devised a ‘creative production line’ when it comes to his work. Years spent archiving, collating, wearing, staining, screen-printing, stretching and treating T-shirts to form neatly-squared makeshift canvases, sometimes batch producing has given him sufficient experience to confidently sail through his work and create wonderful end products. He often goes at lightening speed to produce fantastic T-shirts.
In contrast, his paintings require a patient investment, whilst offering no formula other than proportion. Each new work unexpected and non-connected to previous works.
