Next Artist Talk – Paul Jex

All welcome – Paul’s talk will start at 7.30pm, Wednesday 5th November, Central Club, Darlington

Paul Jex is a Newcastle based artist who is focused on the apparently tangential mechanisms of the presentation and approach of art. His work evaluates the process in which the audience participates with art, whether this be in newspapers, books, online or first hand in public domains such as galleries or other spaces of engagement.

At the centre of Paul’s methodology is the act of collecting, appropriating and referencing of images. With various levels of meaning supported by antidotes his work reveals a sequence of individual and holistic investigations.

As part of the blimey! artist talk, Paul will discuss the importance of chance and discovery, individual and group participation and in particular his on going exploration of the monochrome; the single colour in art.
