G39 is currently showing the work of John Gingell, His collection of work is called ‘Tree study’.

Showing from the 16th August to (undecided date)

I decided to write my Exhibition review on the G39 Gallery due to the simplicity of the artist’s work, I believe the simplicity is what made the artwork so interesting. John Gingell forms of artwork vary from painting, performance, installation, sculpture and public art. I find his collection of work called ‘Tree Study’ fascinating due to the intricate detail and precision work. Just by looking at the large tree piece you could see how much time and detail it must have taken to create his amazing artwork. He uses both sculpture and film to represent what i beleive to be his view on natual beauty and the simplity of the land. Looking at the hand made wooden tree closely you could see the most tinest detail of hand carved wood and finely cut brances.

The time and effort taken to produce the final project i find was a poor use of his time because i personally dont think the final outcome is at a standerd to be shown in a gallery, I feel there was more work that could have been done to increase the beauty and interest of it as a whole. I think the time and effort taken to simply just make a wooden tree could have been spent producing a much stronger body of work.

Another large piece of his work was a large pile of (again)  wooden bricks, it looked like a enlarged version of the game genga. Looking at it gave me the sense of childhood and immaturity,  and the feeling of wanting to remove blocks to then see what happens.

Overall I found his work interesting but not to have reached the potional of its peak. I do recomand that people interested in Sculpture go to the G39 Gallary though as im sure it will apply to the interests of those who like that form of artwork.
