Dendritic Forms

(2010) Dendritic Forms

Full text not available from this repository.

Description/Abstract:GV Art is pleased to present a new solo exhibition by the artist and lecturer Andrew Carnie, whose current work explores scientific themes and involves ‘picturing’ the body through science. The topics of his work include memory, the brain, developmental neuroscience, genetic disorders, temporal lobe epilepsy and the human body after death. His practice often involves concentrated interaction with scientists in different fields as a stage in the development of his work; other works are self-generated and develop from robust ideas he is interested in.
Carnie often creates work that is time-based in nature, involving 35mm slide projection using dissolve systems or video projection onto complex screen configurations. In a darkened space layered images appear and disappear on suspended screens, the developing display absorbing the viewer into an expanded sense of space and time through the slowly unfolding narratives that evolve before them.
endritic Forms is a body of work that investigates the visual motifs of trees and organic matter that is mirrored within the human body and altered through Carnie’s interest in computer technology and developmental biology.

exhibition talk
On Thursday 12th August artist Andrew Carnie and scientist Richard Wingate discuss the work on display and how Carnie’s artistic practice collides with Wingate’s scientific research.
The discussion is free but booking is essential and begins at 7pm in the gallery. Refreshments are included.
Born in 1957, Andrew studied Chemistry and Painting at Warren Wilson College, North Carolina, then Zoology and psychology at Durham University, before completing a degree in Fine Art at Goldsmiths College, London.
