'Sun Shines Out Of My Arts'
A Solo Exhibition By Carl Cashman
4th - 20th February 2016
Based out of Devon in the UK, Carl primarily works on wood panels, though he recently expanded his practice to include works on found objects and repurposed surfaces, such as old paintings and baseball bats. Using UV reactive paints at times to create an added dimensional effect, his abstract geometric imagery often produces the illusion of emitting actual light and movement. Visually hypnotic and entrancing, they’re optically stimulating pieces that seem to hum with energy and depth, interrupting our expectations of real space in a wash of color and illusion.
Carl has shown work all over the world in places such as: New York, San francisco, Berlin, Miami, Amsterdam plus many more.
For this show, Cashman has created a new selection of work in two parts – one is a series of pieces on reclaimed or found materials and the other half is playing with iconic symbols or logos using the idea of illusion and tricking the eye. Still recognisable and within his visual language, Carl continues the concept of creating images by using only straight lines, allowing the possibility of incorporate texts and symbols within his new body of work.
The exhibition launches on Thursday 4th February at 6:30pm with refreshments supplied by our sponsors 'Amigo's Beer' and then our neighbours 'The Alley' who will be open throughout the whole launch night. The exhibition is also supported by 'YAYA' who will be hosting an afterparty at Gonzo's Tea Room.
