Exhibitions: Leo Fitzmaurice & Mark Titchner

I visited the New Art Gallery in Walsall this morning for a meeting about some future voluntary work, and couldn’t leave without seeing the current exhibitions.

Leo Fitzmaurice ‘collects, contains and re-edits the visual noise that forms part and parcel of 21stcentury life’ and has transformed Floor 4 gallery space through the use of mass produced printed material. The overall effect of each piece looked a lot more complex than how simple the folding technique actually was. A beautiful idea in giving new life to printed materials.

Floor 3 showed more detailed works by Mark Titchner who creates in ‘a wide variety of media, often combining new technologies with more traditional craft techniques…. Text commonly features within his work and he draws from a wide range of sources including song lyrics, advertising slogans, corporate mission statements and political manifestos.’ The large metal typography was stunning and skillfully produced.
