Axisweb at the London Art Fair
Come and Join us
15-19 January 2014
Axisweb returns to exhibit at the fair within critically acclaimed Art Projects, which focuses on emerging artists, curated group displays and large-scale installations.
Our selection focuses on four artists who take pleasure in abstract shape, colour and pattern, and whose works reveal something of their own making.
Clive A Brandon
Clive A Brandon, KinoKino Residency Documentation, 2013
Clive A Brandon makes paintings, collages, photographs, books, films and interventions that respond to the contemporary city and the utopian ideals of modernist architecture. He draws inspiration from artists as diverse as Paul Nash and Gordon Matta-Clark, distilling his visual observations into small-scale works that often combine watercolour with collage. The experience of walking closely informs his practice, and recent residencies in Scotland, Norway and Sweden have further developed an expanded field of landscape art.

George Charman, A Drowned Man, 2010
George Charman’s drawings, constructions and installations explore the philosophical and spiritual dimension of building things. His drawings and sculptures, often strongly architectural in character, lay bare the process by which they have been made. From staggeringly intricate drawings to the most pared-down of constructions, his work addresses enduring questions about architecture as an expression of human aspiration.

Tom Hackney, Chess Painting No.9 (F.Marshall vs. M.Duchamp, Hamburg, 1930), 2011
Tom Hackney’s Chess Paintings (2009 – present) use the records of chess games played by Marcel Duchamp in the 1920s to create abstract works which marry the enclosed, self-regulating structures of chess and a precise, deliberately sparing application of paint. These carefully controlled gesso paintings reflect the artist's interest in the idea of inhabiting and reactivating historical material to create a painted index of thought-processes. He sees chess and painting as arenas in which the mind and eye are equally at play.

Virginia Verran, P L I N Y, 2011-2012
Virginia Verran’s work is at once graphic and painterly, delicate and forceful. Her paintings contain intimations of flesh, human activity and atmospheric space, while her drawings are more suggestive of the urban environment, with its awkward juxtapositions, contrasts and collisions. She wants her work to feel ‘inevitable’ – the outcome of an ineluctable process of deliberation and chance.
