BACKGROUND

Wednesday 20th Feb - Saturday 23rd Mar 2013

In David Blandy's latest film a pair of figures walk and converse through a series of animated landscapes. The 16-bit representations are of Blandy and his father, John, discussing their respective art practises, wandering past snow covered temples, rainforest and ruined cities, images at once recognisable as the virtual territory of David's practise.

For this exhibition David has commissioned his father to produce a series of pastel landscapes, based on appropriated images. This employment of virtual scenes produced by a third, un-credited maker, is distinctly at odds with John's practice and ethos, however John Blandy has approached this source material meticulously, adapting his normal working methods to produce a series of densely worked images.
