Artist Talk :

Marcus Lanyon at Exeter Phoenix

Wed 24 May 2017 : 5pm : £3.50* (free for Exeter College students)



Lanyon’s work focuses on the constant yet seductive ‘disquiet’ that defines our lives now, in contrast to the relative or apparent social certainties of the past. It is an exploration of the climate of social, political and personal anxiety that this engenders.

Using a range of materials for both their cultural resonance and ability to echo different stages of human technological development – such as pigment, ink, earth, cloth, clay, bronze, iron and aluminium – the work highlights our diverse, complex and evolving relationships with these key human concerns.

After graduating from the Royal College of Art, London, Lanyon was selected as one of the inaugural Saatchi Gallery & Channel 4’s 4 New Sensations. His work is included in the Zabludowicz Collection.

He is currently based in Bristol, UK, and an Associate of Spike Island.
