Solo and group show exhibition news Autumn 2020

 Well it seems like an age since I last posted (which of course it is) and probably too much has gone on for everybody to list things that I have been up to in that time. So I will stick to the here and now. During lockdown I have been working on a set of drawings titled 'Thousand Year Storm'  so far 6 parts, these are ambiguous black and white pieces based upon some of my archived macro photographs but selected to hint at the swirling gases and elements that make up a gas giant planet. Part one of this series is currently on display in the Warrington 'Open Art Festival' taking place at the Warrington Museum and Gallery https://wmag.culturewarrington.org/  but those who cant make it here is an image of said work...


Part two of the series will be showing in 'Paper Festival' towards the end of the year taking place (fingers crossed) across venues in Manchester, more of that to follow at a later time.
I have also been asked to show a large selection of works in my first solo exhibition for quite a while at 'Bowery' in Leeds. This is set to open next week (31/10/2020) and I am very much looking forward to it, updates on how its going will appear on my Instagram page (@davidlunt3211) and more info about the 'Bowery' can be found here http://www.thebowery.org/ I will be showing over 20 pieces taken from my ongoing project from the last 5 years and I havn't really had the chance to see them together before, I will post photos when the work is up. Anyway so long everyone and take care in these strange times.

The Universe is Expanding!!!

Apologies for a neglect of 'Blogspot' duties but I have been busy over the last year. I have exhibited in a number of shows and have been rapidly putting together a full body of work for a potential solo show towards the end of the year/ early 2020. For updates on work I regularly post on my axisweb page,

as well as on Instagram,

Exhibitions have been coming thick and fast and as well as having work in the recent 'Hang Up' exhibition at 'Bankley Studios Gallery' for 'Manifest', I am showing 3 works with 'Lumen' at Nuffield Hospital in Oxford and 1/2 works have just been confirmed for a 'Moon Landing 50' celebration show at Illkely Manor in Yorkshire. All works are my recent exo-planet and exo-moon miniatures.
Hopefully more will follow!!
I should also be showcasing one of my animations at 'University of Mary Washington' in Fredericksburg, USA (http://www.umwmediawall.com/about/) as part of their Autumn programme which I am very much looking forward to. In the meantime here is a recent drawing from my ongoing project 'Existence is Doubted' and a recent animation named 'Quadrillion' of which I am really pleased....

New Work April 2018

I have finally completed my drawing 'New Tethyzonia Plots 1-35', a piece I have been working on for about 6 months and is part of my ongoing cycle, pictured is the final two drawings plots 34 and 35.

 
I have also started a new 'Blender' animation using my painting 'Hypothetical (exo)planet 4' as a texture, this is just the first part of a much longer animation which I hope to show in its full scope by the end of the year.

Planet Hopper 2018 Blender Animation

New piece following on from 'Interstellar 2', the audio track is from the NASA archives and to my understanding is the sounds emitted by the planet Saturn when sound waves were bounced off it (there is a complete 'sounds of space' mp3 on  archive.org and also snippets directly downloadable from the NASA website), I have changed the pitch for the animation but apart from that its the same. An amazing naturally weird piece of music to accompany my short!! Once again my drawings and photographs are being used as textures for the planet(s) and structures and is taken from the viewpoint of a drone/probe searching for... well whatever drones/probes may be searching for...
