Daniel Eatock

We are delighted to see the Kemistry Gallery is hosting a solo exhibition of the work by Daniel Eatock. We are big fans of Daniels work and have spent lots of time checking throught the work on his website.

The show will be entitled ‘Editions & Originals’ and will presents a collection of works and ideas in a multitude of permutations, all linked by the belief in concept first.

Eatock is interested in connections between image and language, titles, punch lines, miscommunication, subversions, open systems, contributions from others, seriality, collections, discovery and inventing. Eatock makes conceptual things that are resolved in a reductive, logical and objective way, and is especially interested in the connection of the start and end points of a hand drawn circle. Eatock’s work responds to personal fascinations and the desire to invent, discover and present. From an edition of prints made using every colour Pantone felt-tip pen, to the ongoing Channel 4’s Big Brother identity, all work is unified in its conceptual, reductive, rational attempt at forming an answer or a conclusion. The simple notion that work made without a brief is ‘art’ and work made in response to a brief is ‘design’, does not fit, art and design cross, merge and collide challenging preconceptions from each respective discipline.
