Triptych – Oil on canvas 30cm x 30cm exhibited at ‘Deptford Does Art’ as part of Second Floor Studios’ 2018 Painting Open. December 7th – for two weeks.
Inconclusive Drawing [see the video here] is a video record of abstract marks on acetate made to explore the tensions between creation and destruction, asking what we create in the act of destruction and what is destroyed when we create? Part animation, part live action and with an improvised soundtrack created as a response to the dynamic of the work’s progression and to its subsequent transformation.
Andrew Gallacher has a Master’s Degree in Fine Art from the University of Kent and his work has been exhibited at Tate Modern. He is an audio-painter, text-sculptor and image-wrangler exploring the liminal interstice between constructed narrative and periphrastic assembly.

Andrew Gallacher: Data for Data’s Sake
I will deliver spirited readings of this data. Perhaps I will stand at a lectern and be lit theatrically. I may wear a costume – perhaps academic robes, or a clerical surplice, or the evening dress of a concert tenor. These performances could last about 5 minutes and be performed to fit in with other events taking place in the venue. I envisage 4 such performances on each of the two days.

Muster Station is a rethinking and regrouping; an evolving group of artists that emerged as a direct consequence of the closure of their art school and the need to produce a new imagination for their agency. Continue reading “Muster Station: The School of Beginnings”
