Tim Fishlock - THE POEM WILL RESEMBLE YOU

Opens: Nov 25, 2020

An exclusive look at Tim Fishlock's brand new series from 2020

"In the five years we have been working with Tim Fishlock he has relentlessly pushed boundaries with each new collection. Brilliantly considered and relevant to our times this current collection of his lyrical journey raises the bar yet higher still. 'The Poem Will Resemble You' is nothing short of a psychedelic modern day masterpiece.”

"This on-going series of large-scale paintings was born out of the interactive spinning wheel piece, THE POEM WILL RESEMBLE YOU. Whilst that work is an exploration of semantics and serendipity, these paintings go beyond language and messaging by cropping and abstracting the words and finding a pure enjoyment in the letterforms themselves.

The use of repetition and the comic book palette gives the work a Pop aesthetic. For inspiration, I looked at the large-scale paintings of KAWS and worked hard on making the pieces as refined and precise as possible. The fact that these paintings have a strong Op Art quality in the flesh was an unexpected bonus."

Tim Fishlock

In an era when attention spans are short and brevity is king, I’ve been working at saying as much as possible with as few words as possible. Aware that this approach can become a potential creative cul-de-sac, I discovered for myself the lyrical power and shift in consciousness that can be achieved by subverting the normal word order and its semantic meaning. It’s an impersonal method of inspiration and invention. As Burroughs put it, ‘You cannot will spontaneity but you can introduce the spontaneous factor with a pair of scissors.
