Jonathan Anderson pylon totems

Anderson’s work aligns metaphysical ideas with industrial materials: coal, bitumen, sand and soil are regularly used. Often sculptural, his works are simultaneously malignant and beautiful. Pylon Totems, cloaked in rags and bitumen, make pan-cultural references that allude to Crucifixes, Asian Buddhist statues, South American and African voodoo dolls. Yet the inspiration came from the many hundreds of electricity pylons that criss-cross the landscape of Wales. The work functions as a meditative tool to contemplate contemporary issues of ecology, religion and politics.

There will be an opening event with a talk from the artist on Friday 6 October at 6pm
