About

 

Tony graduated with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art Sculpture from Kingston University in 1993 and an MA in Fine Art from the Wimbledon College of Art in 2013.

Tony explores the relation between geometry, light, surface and form creating multi-faceted reliefs from a process of drawing and folding.  Using a polymer-based drafting film with a matte translucent surface, and casting light over the surface of each work, illusions of triangles and parallelograms in differing shades of light and dark appear to shift in movement, depth and shape. This is exaggerated further with the movement of the viewer.

Experimenting with photographic lighting filters, Tony created ‘Colour Temperature Blue‘, a series of window hangings  at St.Peter’s-in-the-Forest Church in Epping Forest, London.  Made with a lighting gel corresponding to the same colour temperature of sunlight, each hanging is created from a process of layering and folding to replicate the darkening shades of sky blue from sunlight through to nightfall.

Tony is based at City Studios in Walthamstow, northeast London graduating with an MA Fine Art from Wimbledon College of Art in 2013 where he was awarded the Tokyo Arts and Space Residency. He writes for Saturation Point, an online resource for reductive, geometric and systems artists and will be presenting E17s Colour and Light evening lecture as part of the Artillery Arts Evening Lecture Series (date tbc).
