Giordano Maggiotto & Sparks | Upstream Gallery, Hastings
Enrico Giordano offers a new way of looking at his own work: images accidentally modified by a computer glitch are taken and reworked by layering, deforming or otherwise transforming. The results are mysterious and moving. In the east gallery, we introduce two new artists: John Maggiotto and James Sparks. Maggiotto’s photo-based work explores memory and our relationship to public imagery. Sparks’ exuberant palette and elegant line are employed to re-imagine the world of Hieronymous Bosch.
