An Old Friend
new works by Luke Harnden

"Working within a language developed through a rigid painting and sculptural practice Luke Harnden offers a new series of works entitled "An Old Friend". Conceptually these works are explorations of new media concepts that engage with digital and binary methods of constructing an image but processed in the physical realm of paint and material exploration. The paintings achieve their appearance by adopting an algorithmic process, which produces a series of marks that are expressive and individualistic yet work within a mathematical system of predetermination that renders form. Adopting the idea of programming, Harnden codes physical material that allows for the emergence of pattern within a complex and methodical arrangement of marks. The hand of the artist becomes at once visible and hidden as the variable initial decisions output an analog algorithm that embraces chance, loss of authorship and systematized beauty.
