Marlon from the 'a million tiny truths' sequence - available in A1 (23.4 X 33.1 inches) and A3 (11.7 x 16.5 inches) in signed limited editions (print run of 75) with certificates of authenticity in gloss, matt, original and negative versions; as an A1 or A3 gloss poster, or as part of the 'a million tiny truths' postcard set.
'a million tiny truths' is an A1 sequence created in pen & ink sourced from 3000 low resolution web images to investigate and meld the boundaries of comic, graphic, photo realistic and abstract art. The sequence explores concepts of originality, production, and reproduction and the generation of meaning in the eye, in the image, and in its reception and interpretation. The overarching subject theme is of conformity and non conformity.
The final installation was presented on 4 double sided printed A1 canvases with the original and negative images printed on either side in high gloss poster format suspended from the ceiling by wires and rotated by motor.
The pen & ink technique uses a form of pointillism or stippling. Apparently photo realistic images made up from stark graphic slices are intermixed with naturalistic shading and textures. Actually these textures are formed from abstract stippled shapes. These images are simultaneously purely abstract and wholly realistic. A breakout of the details of the main images is available here. radical ant on instagram displays sequenced photographs of the gradual production of each picture.
