SHOWCASE....Untitled by Steven Porter
Each week curators pick their favorite piece, helping you to discover fresh, artistic talent.
Porter’s ink drawings are material explorations in form and colour, which feature coloured forms on a stark white background which simply falls away. Porter says that “the ink drawings are made quickly to trap the idea before [he loses] it,” and the forms themselves capture the freshness of a new idea. These forms are architectural and geometric, as though a shape has been loosely tessellated and shifted around the page. Porter works with precision in haste, creating bright and buoyant figures.
