OLIVER MARSDEN: FADE – Vigo Gallery, London

9 April - 14 May 2014
Vigo Gallery


Vigo is proud to present Marsden’s latest series Fade, a logical extension of the Harmonic series in which he attempted to capture the movement of water and sound waves in circle paintings comprised of dozens of layers of glaze and thinned paint. The Harmonics played on the way our brains process information, the effect of surrounding light levels, and the viewer’s state of being as catalysts for the way the works are experienced. They would feel totally different according to these factors, the outer blurred edges of the circles, which tended to hover in a state of flux, rendering the work sculpturally dynamic.
