Pi­o­neer­ing Piers in the spot­light

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - What's On - - EXHIBITION -

An ex­hi­bi­tion of work by pi­o­neer­ing artist Piers Se­cunda will be un­veiled in Kent this week. In­stead of sim­ply ap­ply­ing paint to a sur­face, Piers, who lives in Lon­don, casts the paint and makes it into a sculp­ture. He added: “I have al­ways been both­ered by the phys­i­cal re­straints of the can­vas. For me, it lim­its what a paint­ing can be, so I’ve dis­posed of it and I han­dle the paint on its own – by de­fault the paint be­haves like a sculp­tural ma­te­rial.” Piers Se­cunda – A Ret­ro­spec­tive will be at the Up­down Gallery, Rams­gate from Fri­day, June 21, to Satur­day, July 27. It is open from 10am to 6pm, Tues­day to Fri­day, and from 11am to 6pm on Satur­day. Call 01843 588181.
