Mesh at the Waterloo Gallery

Farouk Campbell

"Mesh" equals colour and abstract. The brainchild of textile designer Jo Gibbs and furniture designer Stephen von Lingelsheim, Mesh heralds a new direction for abstract art and its creation.

Jointly working to create a single image both artists have forged an
innovative approach to abstract art by "painting digitally on silk". The
results are spell binding, shimmering displays of colour.

Inspired by "details of our surroundings", images are bathed in vibrant hues
of ambient, passionate eye-catching gradation of tones. They show the
microscopic, dilated and blurring of lines, shapes and hues.

Images can be interpreted at face value as simple abstract forms but contain
a deeper observation of hair-like follicles, spermatozoa, blood vessels,
neon bisecting roadways and cell formations. However these images are
viewed there is no mistaking the imaginative and dominating beauty of their
lines, shapes and abundant colours.

Mesh continues from 10 to 21 September, Waterloo Gallery
