the point at which a painting achieves its own “pictorial logic”…






ALICE BLACK is pleased to present Lee Marshall UX which will open with a private view on Thursday 21 February (6:00-8:00PM). The exhibition brings together a new body of work in which Marshall investigates the impact and influence of digital media upon painting and his own creative process.  

The works included reveal two counterpoints which lie at the heart of London based Marshall’s work – a celebration of the potential of digital media and imaging software to generate new aesthetics, whilst expressing anxiety over what it means to put paint to canvas in a digitally dominant world. The show is centred on Marshall’s conceptual development of the ‘Canvas Interface’. He views this as an analog to technological user experience/UX and its relationship to the painted surface, which in this context takes on the role of the screen.
