London Art Fair: Art Projects 2015
For London Art Fair 2015 Art Projects Antlers presented a collection of new works by Jemma Appleby and Geoff Diego Litherland.
This curated presentation examined meeting points between these two artists practices. Jemma and Geoff both explore concepts surrounding space: Jemma through ambiguous architectural forms and Geoff in his cartographical studies of terrains and landscapes in flux. A focus on form and the minimalist lack of narrative in Jemma’s work evokes a quietness that is echoed in Geoff’s practice. Both Jemma and Geoff present human-less interiors and landscapes that capture an uncertain time and place.
Jemma Appleby presented a body of intimate, contemplative charcoal on paper drawings that at first glance appear to be exterior and interior architectural drawings. These drawings amplify the simplicity and purity of each environment with an aim of clarification. These clean, minimal spaces offer little information yet have an authority to describe a magnitude. This non-narrative architectural aesthetic makes enquiries of the memory, knowledge and experience of human space.
Geoff Diego Litherland presented a new body of work that expands on his Space Ship Earth Window series. This collection of new octagonal paintings invites a ghostly, ephemeral reading and the debut of a new side to his practice: large-scale oil painted maps. Geoff’s work envisions a timeless spatial order where cosmic forces impact like meteors onto an archaic fleeting landscape. These deftly rendered paintings have an aura of illusory space and imply passages through parallel worlds, where human influence is oddly absent.
