SONY PS3 / THE STUDIO
The Studio, a development partner of Sony's PS3 playstation project, invited Chuck Elliott to work on an animated desktop image for the machine. The limitations available restricted the colour palette and resolution available, but despite these constraints, an interesting animated version of Flow was created, and is available to download for the PS3 console.
In a contemporary art world endlessly fascinated with concepts of minimalism and fragility, SPECTRA I explores the artists, mediums and substrates boldly defining the current colour zeitgeist. Hosted at the Londonewcastle Project Space and curated by The Future Tense, SPECTRA I will be on view from November 24 through December 18 2011, and will feature a wide range of mediums including painting, sculpture, installation, drawing, animation and digital art from a vital international roster of 7 artists...
THE HUFFINGTON POST
Future Tense: Pop Up Art Gallery.
So Shoreditch, essentially, is the ideal setting for SPECTRA I: the first in a three part survey, as it has been coined, of dynamic colour use in contemporary art. Presented by The Future Tense - which acts as a springboard for emerging artists and specialises in the pop-up art gallery phenomena - SPECTRA I is set inside an old hat factory on Redchurch street.
Our primary aim with RE:DEFINE is always to present a vital mix of both established and emerging artists, spanning as many disciplines as possible. We also attempt to embrace a modern, artistic interpretation of the infamous 'MTV generation' moniker throughout the event. Within that broad structure we look to encompass one or two main themes. In 2011 we successfully combined pop imagery with icons - from Shepard Fairey's take on the American flag to Russell Young's shimmering diamond dust Bardot.
Chuck Elliott is a British artist whose practice is concerned with a fluid investigation of colour, movement and light. Entirely computer generated, free form shapes are cropped, recoloured and enhanced as if editing in a camera view.
International artists explore colour in The Future Tense
By Culture24 Reporter | 05 December 2011
Taking the words of early 20th century Swiss-German painter Paul Klee as an inspiration – the influential palette contortionist called colour "the place where our brain and the universe meet" – Spectra I explores some of the artists putting the full range of the rainbow to flamboyant use today.
Following unprecedented success for the debut event in 2011, RE:DEFINE in aid of the MTV Staying Alive Foundation returns to the Goss-Michael Foundation in Dallas with a significantly enhanced program and another high-profile lineup of contemporary art, much of which has been produced exclusively for the event. Curated once again by The Future Tense, the contributing artists are as follows:
Yasmine Arman, Charming Baker, Lee Baker, Scott Campbell, Mat Collishaw, Chuck Elliott, Ryan Gander, James Hugonin, Ralf Kaspers, Jim Houser, Tat Ito, Tom Leighton, Michael Craig-Martin, Pedro Matos, Tomokazu Matsuyama, Mary McCartney, Ryan McGinness, Matt Mignanelli, Aakash Nihalani, Parra, Marc Quinn, Gérard Rancinan, Michael Reisch, Jen Stark, Kai and Sunny, Swoon, Juergen Teller, Mark Webber, Dave White.
Chuck Elliott’s first solo exhibition of digital abstracts at Freeny Yianni's Close House. Music for the event has been composed by Elizabeth Purnell who has created three new site specific sound pieces to accompany the event. Noted for her theatre work, music for radio plays and electronic explorations, she is also a busy orchestrator, having worked on shows including 'Any Human Heart', and over 40 feature film and TV projects, including the BAFTA award winning 'Life in Cold Blood'.
THE INVENTION OF COLOUR / BRISTOL UNIVERSITY
Where did artists get their colours from, and how have changes in the repertoire of colours over the ages affected the way that artists paint? Science writer Philip Ball will address these questions in a public lecture at the University of Bristol on Tuesday 1 March.
The Londoner exhibition Space FUTURETENSE in Shoreditch drags people in with a giant iris looking outside. The disarming work of british artist Chuck Elliot opens a ‘survey of dynamic use of color in contemporary art’, which can be taken literally.
