FIRST LOOK | GEOFF McFETRIDGE’S “MEDITALLUCINATION” AT V1 COPENHAGEN
A master graphic designer and visual thinker, Supertouch buddy Geoff McFetridge brings the same elegant minimalism to his fine art with "Meditallucination," a new body of paintings, drawings, and hand painted ceramics opening this week at V1 Gallery in Copenhagen, Denmark. “The images are meditations, in that they come from inside but they are also listening to the world around me," explains McFetridge. "The paintings attempt to deeply engage with reality to try to attain transcendence. Hallucinations in that they are a made of the raw material of our brain, beyond experience, they are found images that are nearly hard wired into our minds. I have always been interested in creating work that lies between image and language. Imagery that your mind “reads” as language rather than seeing them as spatial or physical things. These graphic images are for me a way to induce a misfiring of our mind to create a connection, and resonance for the viewer. I want them to feel something, not happy, or sad, but to feel like the letter T.” Have a look:
