Jerwood Encounters – Glithero – Jerwood Visual Arts Union Street London SE1 0LN – Jenny Meehan WordPress Journal

February 2, 2012

Visit to the Jerwood Visual Arts on Union Street  SE1 0LN.  Of most interest to me was “Burn Burn Burn” (2007) a work by Glithero (Sarah van Gameren and Tim Simpson).  I could watch this for hours…a flame travels through time along a  flammable screen printed decorative pattern of paint  on a wooden panel (in this setting) which  leaves a charcoal trace as it progresses.  Also on display are past patterns made with the same process.   “Literally and metaphorically it is the ashes of a process”.  And on their  website “ The work is presented in a broad spectrum of medium, but follows a consistent conceptual path; to capture and present the beauty in the moment things are made”  A worthy aim, in my opinion, and what beautiful work it is:   Time and transformation…..mmmmm.
