Preview for Pose and Revok’s upcoming show Dubai

April 12 2014 . 10:05pm

 

For their Middle East debut, both artists produced entirely new bodies of work using processes they developed recently, more like an evolution of their existing work than a new direction. Along with large canvases,will introduce a new series of works on paper created by painting a full-scale mural then breaking down the pieces into individual works. Revok’s new creations are more mature, deliberate and reasoned, while staying fully abstract, geometrical, and almost brighter than before. The event will take place at The Mine in Dubai, on Thursday, April 24th from 8pm – midnight, and will be strictly invitation only.

Revok + Jim Darling | Sunday Mass print available now!

Artists Jim Darling and Revok recently collaborated on this found object art installation in an abandoned church in the heart of Detroit. Working on the piece for two days, the artists dragged an organ up two flights of stairs along with any other pieces of debris in the vicinity they could use to assemble the infinity symbol shown here.

“When we started this there wasn’t a plan at all. We drove around for a few days just looking at everything. He took me everywhere in Detroit. The church we picked was one of the buildings we looked at on the first or second day of my trip. There were a lot of great elements to work with and the building was amazing. It took us about two and a half exhausting days to complete.” – Jim Darling

“It actually came together much faster than a typical “mural wall” or a piece I create in the studio, however it was much more physically laborious, which was really good! I remember carrying a giant organ and a piano up two narrow flights of stairs from the basement. Jim and I decided it would be most satisfying to create the installation only from objects and materials we could scavenge from the site itself. The church is massive so we carried all kinds of big heavy shit and swept 2 inches of dirt from the entire floor where the installation was created.” – Revok

This RUN comes signed, numbered and with a Certificate of Authenticity from Jim Darling, Revok and 1xRUN.
