Moore Contemporary presents the work of three artists under the title Augmented, alluding to varied digital or augmented processes undertaken by each artist in the concept and production of their selected works.
Joshua Webb has a distinguished interdisciplinary practice often working in light, concrete and plastics. His sculptural objects visually stem from ecosystems and he employs digital technologies with traditional building techniques in the realisation of his works. Tove Kjellmark’s pioneering art has been described as a glitch between the digital and the organic. She often describes her interest as being “Another Nature”, where humanity and technology are unified. She adopts resources such as motion capture, 3D scanning, and robotics in her investigation, yet her work is often realised in traditional materials of bronze or marble along with new materials such as polylactide. Painter Ian Williams is interested in the interpretation of reality within virtual environments and how this can be expressed through painting. He references the found objects and substructures within video games, employing the conventions of still life painting to explore the properties of the virtual everyday object.
Artist Abdul-Rahman Abdullah is presented in Installation Contemporary with the major sculpture Dead Horse (2022).
