We are delighted to present the work of Georgie Grace, Jennet Thomas and Serial Composition as part of this artist showcase. The artists were selected from the 2017 Plymouth Contemporary, a major Plymouth biennial exhibition hosted by Peninsula Arts and KARST.

They were recognised for presenting new and original ideas and pushing the boundaries of their field, which include film, animation, painting and drawing.

Animal Condensed and Animal Expanded #2 by Jennet Thomas:

Two characters speak urgently to camera about their strange relationship with an intelligent substance they call ‘Animal Expanded’. Intercut with glimpses of their world, a picture builds of an accelerated future where ‘real’ animals may no longer exist – their spirits abstracted into a virus that causes humans to lose control to an artificially intelligent world.

Serial Composition:

Brendan Lancaster and Kelly Best have been working collaboratively as Serial

Composition since 2015. The experimental dialogue between the two artists results in a set of rules for making new paintings and drawings. Their blind collaboration is a constantly evolving process of exchange that places emphasis on process over ‘finished’ results.

Attention Seeker by Georgie Grace:

Georgie Grace builds landscapes and environments for video production using tools for making video games. Her new video work leverages the way we imagine movement through time as a movement through space and spatialises mental states, and uses digital landscapes and virtual cinematography in combination with sound and hypnotic suggestion to induce and play with these shifts.
