All change at Cultivate again this week, well things are always evolving, but you know what we mean. This week at Cultivate Evolved, we welcome two new artists to our guest wall spaces. JAMIE STANTON and SAMANTHA PAYNE
“Samantha Payne is a Fine Artist from North London who focuses on the aesthetic of her work and its engagement with the viewer, rather than concept. The pure pleasure of creating is the driving force behind her painting, along with the belief that Art need not be complicated”.
.Jamie Stanton is a London-based digital artist
When our ancestors first etched symbols on blocks of ochre during the Upper Palaeolithic, and recorded for the first time internal thoughts on external media, they didn’t know they were taking the first steps of a fifty thousand year journey to instantaneous planetary communications.
From bead necklaces to broadcasting towers, as these technologies evolved so did the cognitive structures that facilitated them. And as our brains transformed, so did the way we perceived the world and in turn how we physically transformed it. The tools we build today to navigate the abyss of information that is the internet are forging new neural pathways in the brain. New forms of symbolic syntax that represent a new layer of cognition; one that will cast shadows millennia long.
Jamie and Samantha will be occupying our guest wall space from this Thursday onwards. Cultivate Evolved is open from 11.30am until 6pm Thursday through to Sunday, or by appointment at other times. We look forward to seeing what they hang on our ways this coming Wednesday….
