DAVENPORT

Ian Davenport (1966-). English painter.
A young English artist who proposes again (we must admit it) the game of the rhythmic sequence of stripes of color. Okay, we have already seen them a few decades ago, but it's always nice to see that there is still someone who is dedicated to this research. So it's all pouring and dripping color that will then collect in puddles at the base of the metal panel. These works are not made on the computer or even using laser printers, it's very important, they are more simply done manually using syringes filled with acrylic colors. The purpose? Sensitize the observer to the sequence, to the alternation of colors. It is not little, considering the total visual mis-education inducted by the television medium.
