As cold as can be in an English Sea – Lockdown Collages by John Lymer :: Gallery 40, Brighton :: 9-15 August 2021

Mixed media collages produced over lockdown by Fine artist John Lymer will be on show at Brighton’s Gallery 40 during August 2021

“Fine artist John Lymer explores aspects of surface, layering textures and deconstructed images to question our visual perception. His monochrome collages suggest a dark and sinister mood, juxtaposing once harmonious elements in deliberate dissonance.

“John creates works where process is key to the practice and the final aesthetic. He starts with a juxtaposition of various media, including drawn images, photography, found materials and treated surfaces.

Subsequent work to the base images may include block printing, painting, stencilled spraypaint, manual mark-marking, additional collage layers, and whatever else is deemed necessary to take the work on its natural development path.

The final work, and the levels of manipulation, development, and added (and/or removed) elements very much depends on what the process throws out: his is an instinctive and puzzle-solving practice, that evolves with each action”
