DASLTON SUPERSTORE 117 KINGSLAND HIGH STREET E8 2PB
Crumbling walls, decomposing surfaces, erosion and fluid colour combinations are just some of the elements Liam Rush draws inspiration from to produce this ever-changing, on-going body of work. Derived from plywood, spray and emulsion these individual timber tessellating squares and rectangles will be constructed to fit the post-industrial walls of Dalston Superstore.
Every exhibition Rush produces is a unique experience, tailored explicitly to the host environment, which won’t be replicated in any other venue. Due to the nature of this work, each time an exhibition is constructed a whole new composition is formed to fit the given space. Each segment exists individually but can be used in combination to create larger
works. Using spray emulsion and plywood Rush creates 3D sculptures that evoke the feeling of eroded man made materials.
He will be engineering the colour and shape of each piece to achieve full visual impact and potential within Dalston Superstore.
Born and raised in South London, Rush then relocated to do a foundation course by the sea in Brighton. In 2007 Rush moved to Bristol to enrol on a degree in Drawing and Applied arts. For the meantime Bristol is home where he is currently pursuing his career as a freelance artist, designer and carpenter.
Rush describes his work as, “paintings that focus on the aesthetics of abandoned architectural and constructed situations. I aim to resemble the surfaces of decrepit advertisement boards, peeled and blistered paint and the visual qualities that result from years of neglect and abandonment.”
The paradox of using artificial weathering to create a pseudo-natural artefact, which is in turn placed in a constructed, unnatural environment, is not to be missed.
