The London housing crisis is one of those ‘first world’ problems which seem to have no end. I tend find it particularly annoying in two situations. One, when I want to organise a dinner party or when I find artistic objects that I’d use to decorate my own place. This is specially so if technology has been used too.
I spent some of my Friday afternoon visiting the art galleries near or on Charlotte Street. I saw there some works of art which I would take home straight away, but I have not space for them – yet.
Rebecca Hossack’s gallery is exhibiting some of the work of Frank Hyder. I saw some colourful pieces there which seem to play with light and different textures. It was rather creative, and I was dying to know how it was done. It was my lucky day, as the artist himself was there taking pictures! So we had a brief and enjoyable chat about that.
Ladies and gents, Frank Hyder.
What I loved the most is the interaction between technology and art. This is a shaped plexiglass covered with a paint and then coated. Inside there are LED lights, which he manages with the little controller on the right. You could change the colours of this one in particular several times. Cool, isn’t it? A bit of a lamp and contemporary art all in one. I loved it.
He was also exhibiting some more of his fish series. Which one is your favourite?
This one looks like 3D.
Thanks for checking this post out! Hope you visit soon.
