Wed 13th// APE FORGETS MEDICATION: Treyfs and Artknacks @ Londonnewcastle project

Literary jack of all trades and performance artist Johnathan Meades presents his first exhibition Ape forgets Medication. It is a rather odd set of works, using various mediums. Using a dose of spontaneity and aleatoricism (the magic of chance), Meades’ creation processes are largely improvisatory. He paints with numerous tools; froissage, hyper-realist photography, digital manipulation, collage etc. Meades is set on bemusing his audience with his meaningless art- knick-knacks and peculiar pieces. Enough of the explaining; the best advice is, go and see it.  More information here:

Inspired by concepts of mathematics, numerology and the movement of the Earth in Space; the foursome bend together harmoniously.
