ALICE HERRICK TASK UPDATE #01 – KEELETORNERO RESPOND TO THE PAINTINGS OF IAN HEALY IN 3D

 

Alice Herrick of Herrick Gallery asked us to come and set up a sculpture studio in the basement of her Mayfair gallery during the Ian Healy exhibition and respond to his paintings in 3D. Our usual medium is paint so despite some initial apprehension it turned out to be really fun as we happily rediscovered some techniques and materials we’d used in the past. The experience of working at the Herrick gallery in the well-heeled environs of Mayfair proved to be good focus for us, since we were there to do one thing only and with Alice on the next floor, regularly checking on our progress, we couldn’t run away. The experience of spending time with another artist’s work is interesting too and it was necessary to get behind the compositions in Ian’s brightly coloured paintings. The characters in the paintings are very strong and the effect they have on you changes the more you get to know them. We hope we managed to treat the subjects with the right amount of respect.


These are some of Ian Healy’s paintings in the exhibition that we were responding to
