Gavin Turk (b 1967) is a British born, international artist. He has pioneered many forms of contemporary British sculpture now taken for granted, including the painted bronze, the waxwork, the recycled art-historical icon and the use of rubbish in art.
Turk’s installations and sculptures deal with issues of authorship, authenticity and identity. Concerned with the ‘myth’ of the artist and the ‘authorship’ of a work, Turk’s engagement with this modernist, avant-garde debate stretches back to the ready-mades of Marcel Duchamp.
Easter is always special and magical so we have decided to add some extra bling to the festive mood and partnered with our friends from Frencho bistro Oui Madame for a mini Joe Webb collage show (18 April -30 May).
Known for his quirky and delicate hand-cut collage pieces, Joe has stayed true to the texture and feeling of collage by using real collaged elements in the silkscreens as well as embossing and glazing.
