PICTURE THIS – Artists Videos

While putting in parallel their works from the 1970s to today, each artist responds to the concept of PICTURE THIS – held at the Gallery in September 2011.

Michael Craig-Martin
Born in 1941 in Dublin, he studied Fine Art at Yale University School of Art and Architecture to then move definitely to London in 1966. He initially used ready-mades, and later fused conceptualism with minimalist art and color field paintings. As well as having achieved an international career with numerous museum exhibitions, he was a leading teacher at Goldsmith College for the BA course and is widely acknowledged for his role in fomenting the YBA generation.

Gerard Hemsworth
Born in London in 1945. Studied at St. Martin’s School of Art, London. His work plays with the inner contradictions of the image, Postminimalism and the subversiveness of representation. International solo exhibitions include The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, Ridgefield, CT 2009. Until recently, Professor of Fine Art at Goldsmiths University of London, where he was Director of the MFA Fine Art.

John Hilliard
Born in Lancaster in 1945. Studied sculpture at St. Martin’s School of Art in London. His work addresses the issue of language and representation through a systematic exploration of the photographic medium itself. His active participation in many solo and group exhibitions (since 1969), including retrospective museum shows in Germany, Italy, Austria and Switzerland, is complemented by his authorship of numerous articles about art and photography. Teaching at the Slade School, University College London, he has been Emeritus Professor in Fine Art since 2010.

John Stezaker
Born in Worcester in 1949. Studied at the Slade School of Art in London. From the start of his involvement with conceptual art he has been using the photographic image to conceptualise the representation of time and action, a position he has continuously developed, extracting from film stills to newspaper clips and archival material, the subliminal connections captured within the language of collage. His academic career includes teaching at St Martin’s and The Royal College of Art.
