"Meredith Marsone's (formerly Collins) paintings and drawings explore questions of heritage and identity. At times there is a tension in her works that reference her Pakeha and Māori heritage, ta moko or floral designs delicately adorn faces of her subjects. Heritage as well as the continuity of one's lineage are depicted in Meredith's works which often feature her with her daughters."
In Spring 2016 Quayola presented solo exhibition Laocoön at One Canada Square in London. The exhibition was a continuation of the artist’s ongoing research into iconography, whereby he abstracts classical sculptures using digital rendering and production techniques. In so doing, Quayola creates new spaces in which relationships between classical and contemporary art forms and themes can be re-thought.
If you follow us already you may know that we run awesome digital art collaboration each spring for the last few years with the resulting exhibitions at OFFF festivals or so. This year together with Youth WorldWide we took a great challenge and moved our cause to London as a standalone group show to happen just in a matter of few days!

"Every day we are surrounded by data generated by our presence in environments saturated with digital technologies and touch screens. Glitch Textiles, a textile design label originated by Brooklyn-based graphic artist Phillip David Stearns, showcases a stunning set of functional, colourful artworks that bridge the gap between woven textiles and digital art, all designed and inspired by algorithms.
The project explores the histories of woven image making and modern digital technologies, transcoding the computer glitches into stunning garments and functional fabrics. Phillip, whose significant projects include a series of experiments on imaging making and the digital realms, tries to create a dialogue about the influence of digital technologies/material and how they will affect how we live our lives in the future."
