O.Two - Phosphene Smoke (Exhibit)
This week at GTD, we opened a new show of paintings by O.Two (James Carey). A collection of works drawing on themes of delinquency, obsession, and exclusion.
Phosphenes - Luminous imagery or hallucination created by electrical manipulation of the brain, optical stimulation through pattern, a direct mechanical stimulation of the retina.
With a visual dialogue established initially by working illegally with spray paint, making large-scale murals and site-specific work without permission, the artist has developed a process of painting that crosses abstracted, ambient fields of colour and gesture with traditional typography, vivid corrupted language and appropriated slogans.
The show is open until Friday, 8th April. Drop by GTD
if you’re in Edinburgh.
