Kevin Townsend is an artist I recently interviewed for Fresh Meat Magazine and I absolutely love his work!

Not only do the lines he uses in his current work relate well to the texturising of my sculpture - in my opinion at least. But, I am also really drawn to how process and material led he and his work has always been - how would I like to work in future? More like Kevin Townsend, that’s how.

If you’re interested in his work check out his site and the May issue of Fresh Meat Gallery’s Online Magazine (and their site and blog too!)

Timelapse video along with 2 large 20” x 30” prints on aluminum from this work will be part of LIFEWORK GALLERY’S: “The Company We Keep,” a pop-up exhibition at the Marks ArtCenter.
Artists’ Reception: Thursday, January 29, 5:00-8:00 pm (exhibition runs from 1/20-2/26)

Mimir is is an exceptionally wise being, a counselor of the gods and often thought of as the animating force behind the wisdom of past tradition and its indispensable value as a guide for present actions. At the center of the Norse spiritual cosmos is an ash tree, Yggdrasil which contains all 9 worlds or branches of existence, this tree grows from the center of Mimir’s Well .

The waters of the well were believed to contain wisdom, Norse god Odin is said to have sacrificed an eye to Mimir in exchange for a drink from his well.

The well is a myth, intended to carry the meaning or essence of an idea rather than describing anything tangible. Yggdrasil and the Well weren’t thought of as existing as a single physical location, but rather they were present within the invisible heart of anything and everything.
