James Kirkpatrick: Sculpting Sound
James Kirkpatrick- Sculpting Sound
Link Gallery – Second Floor
March 1 – 31, 2013
In Sculpting Sound, London based artist James Kirkpatrick created five recent sound sculptures are were display, ready for you to see and play like musical instruments. His work incorporated sculptural, kinetic and auditory elements. By combining his 2D aesthetic with custom-built circuit-bent electronics, Kirkpatrick creates hand-held sculptures that function as both musical instruments and experimental sound machines. The sculptures are extensions of Kirkpatrick’s drawing and painting practice and are also used in his collaborations and live performances.
Kirkpatrick is also known for his participation in the early Canadian graffiti movement and as avant-garde hip-hop artist Thesis Sahib, works in a variety of media including drawing, painting, sculpture, zines, mask-making, and experimental sound improvisation.
The artist gave an artist talk and demonstration on Thursday, March 14 at 7:00pm.
Kirkpatrick is represented by Michael Gibson Gallery in London, ON.
