‘SUPER SPECTRUM’ BY DANIEL EATOCK AT THE CORRAINI 121+ LIBRARY IN MILAN

17/11/2021 – Will open the 24 november and will last until January 29, 2022 at the Libreria Corraini 121+ in Milan the exhibition of the English graphic designer and artist Daniel Eatock from title “Super Spectrum”, a series of original works testifying to his experimentation on the processes of painting and the power of color.

The exhibition “Start with ideas, embrace chance, celebrate coincidence, eliminate superfluous elements, subvert expectations, trust the process, tell the truth” says Daniel Eatock.
The works of the artist, born in 1975, are a full-spectrum celebration of the process of transferring color from the pen to the white sheet. Method and materials have been a passion of his since he was a student at the Royal College of Art and he looked at the consequential marks that the “Magic Markers” left on the papers used by his father in his design studio. These marks are almost magical for Eatock, so much so that since then he has been working by removing his hands from the process and letting the color do its work, on its own, as in response to an “abracadabra”.
The process of transforming and transferring color when it passes from the marker to a surface (in this case it will use paper, wood and glass) is investigated by Daniel Eatock in three different series that will be exhibited in the Super Spectrum exhibition at the Corraini 121+ Library. To create the works, created specifically for the exhibition, the English graphic designer and artist plays and reinvents the traditional tools of painting and drawing: the markers are abandoned on the paper, the tempera are squeezed and ironed with a roller, the reams of paper absorb entire color spectra.

The dense color – ironed with a roller or trapped between the glass and the frame – forms soft patterns that are always different, the sheets of paper used in bulk or crumpled give life to rainbow reams and unusual shades.

Eatock writes about his artistic practice: “I embrace contradictions and dilemmas. I like the gray areas, the oxymorons and the feeling of falling backwards. My favorite color is purple found in a soap bubble. I prefer to trade things rather than use money. I look for in everyday life for alignments, paradoxes, random circumstances, loops, impossibility and ingenuity. I often change my mind and go back to the starting point “.
