I AM REVAD
An artist working with abstract alphabets, text, connectivity and other paraphernalia.
I FIDGET ART
Whatever medium I choose to use, my intention is to draw. On your device, you can view many of my outcomes from anywhere in the world. Prints may also be available. If you need a pigeon hole, I work across several art movements, incorporating elements as the enquiry requires. Think abstract, algorithmic, conceptual, concrete, constructivist, and you may find a partially appropriate pigeon hole. You may also think code is the common factor. Whatever you think, I make what I need to make, when I need to make it.
Enjoying available materials. Applying gesso with gusto is a ‘secret’ pleasure. The physicality inspires. Drawing with a paint marker, indeed a pen of any kind, is pure bliss. Peeling back the surface layer of the corrugated paper board reminded me of my year, as a sixteen year old, working in a (then) local paper board mill as an apprentice lab technician. Good memories!

So, there we have it, my Artweeks installation is complete. I had planned to post the summary views one per day, this week. But, I now have other things to do, and this forced my hand, so they are all here posted today. In addition, here is another view to summarise the summary. This one image overview is a boon for the lazy viewer! To finish, (I must say) this has been a very enjoyable project. A project where I have created many new outcomes and ideas for continued pursuit. Watch out for derivative outcomes as time passes by. Open edition prints are, of course, available from the usual source:
The 40th anniversary edition of the annual Oxfordshire Artweeks begins tomorrow, Saturday 7th May 2022. This year my participation is via a virtual exhibition. Plus, there are open edition prints available from codedimages.com.
