Myles Calvert Solo Show – Ottoman Empire Series

Exhibition ran from 10 Jul 2018 – 29 Jul 2018
Private View 13 Jul, 6.30 - 8.30pm 

Current work explores the relationships that develop between everyday objects and popular culture interferences.  Following the ideals of Romanticism, emphasis is given to an individual experience of emotions.

A moment of spontaneity allows for humour and a subtle twist to avoid an overwhelming glorification of the past through objets of the mundane.

Influences are heavily drawn from contemporary and modern print makers such as Richard Hamilton, René Magritte, and the self-promoting antics of the YBA (Young British Artist) culture.

Unique surfaces are explored through print, with special attention the toast most recently.  A staple food. a universally recognised item.  A set time of day is assumed if consumed. “What is it that makes today’s homes so different, so appealing?” – Richard Hamilton.
