His solo show entitled ‘Atomised’ opened this week at the Lollipop Gallery in London. Jimmy C created an amazing body of work especially for the exhibition that will be visible until October 10th. From canvases, to 3D and bricks sculptures and an interactive self-generated portrait installation, the work on display features the artist’s signature style.
This technique is a development of his drip paintings where he started to enlarge the dots or drips into circles, and then started to play with the idea of the circles becoming spheres, like atoms, where the subject started to break apart or atomise.
One installation that caught our attention was the self-generated portrait where the public could get their Jimmy C’s portraits. The real-time portraits are being created in collaboration with digital software artist Stuart Cupit, who has developed a custom application, which uses a Kinect 2 sensor to capture the contours of the subject’s face. In real-time the software uses a complex algorithm to calculate where to place thousands of spray paint dots, reproducing his painting style in a fluid, interactive and immersive new piece.
