Jonathan Armour and Robert Taylor presenting Fugita, their collaboration resulting in a series of large works on paper exploring the complex dynamic of living in a mature yearning body.
Fugita is the exhibition of the work of Jonathan Armour’s and Robert Taylor’s collaboration; these life-sized images of a “mature yearning body” are presented on large sheets of art paper hung around the pillars of the chapel of Brompton Cemetery.
Jon’s practice has often included images made by applying pigments to the body of his model, then transferring this to the media in various ways. His sessions with Robert sound to have been messy fun and this energy comes through in the images. The collaboration must have been a particular fun for Robert, an accomplished portrait photographer, to make such effective images without the apparatus of professional photography.
GPN London’s meeting tonight at the Camera Club, Kennington, London; a well-attended meeting of this diverse and welcoming group. Camera-stitched panoramic photo of the discussion about contributions on tonight’s subject, “Fashion faux-pas”. Some of the contributed images can be seen on the netting and the screen.
