In the summer of 2006 Lomas Davies hosted "Monochromes" an exhibition of the work of the artist Colin Booth. Commencing this month Colin has an exhibition of new work at the University of the Creative Arts, Canterbury. The exhibition runs from Friday 23rd January 2009 through to Saturday 28th of February 2009.
Herbert Read Gallery, UCA, New Dover Road, Canterbury, CT1 3AN
Tel 01227 817364
The gallery is open Monday-Friday 10.00am - 5.00pm and Saturday 12.00am - 5.00pm
The exhibition features new paintings and wall and floor-based sculptures and two large-scale installation pieces, Metropolis and Streamline, made from found and recycled birch ply and wood.
Architectural influences on Colin's work include the drawings of Erich Mendelsohn and Frank Gehry and the floor-based models of Superstudio, the avant-garde Milan-based architectural practice of the seventies.
"I am interested in the whole aesthetic of early Modernism, however my work embraces imperfection and explores the symbiotic relationship between the
measured and the intuitive.
My work also deals in the relationship between intimacy and the monumental. I have always been fascinated by the way in which a simple idea or sketch, which begins in the mind, can become a monumental structure which you physically enter, or in the case of Metropolis and Streamline, which can potentially fill an entire gallery."
Colin Booth, 2009
