Michael Craig-Martin's sculptures at New Art Centre

June 7, 2011 by Kay

Michael Craig-Martin - New Painting and Sculpture

22 May - 4 September 2011

New Art Centre, Roche Court

The New Art Centre is delighted to present an exciting exhibition of sculptures and paintings by Michael Craig-Martin. Craig-Martin is best known for using subjects drawn from ordinary life which he portrays using a mechanical line, without inflection or any sense of the artist's own hand. He has developed a vast vocabulary of familiar images and, with what he calls his 'universal language', he uses 'simple things to describe very complex ideas' about form and purpose.

With his characteristic economy of means, Michael Craig-Martin's new works made especially for this exhibition, have maximum impact. For the Park, he has taken functional objects, such as umbrellas, a hammer, a gate and a light bulb, and made them iconic. Enlarged and rendered in a stark, brightly coloured outline, they are three dimensional but at the same time also look like great drawings against the sky. Similarly, Craig-Martin's paintings focus on mundane items combined with everyday words. In his compositions, letters and objects are placed next to one another or layered to confuse dimension, scale and perspective.
