S Mark Gubb: Good Sailing…

5 November - 18 March 2012

The first in a series of new work displayed on the exterior wall of Open Eye Gallery.

Gubb’s design incorporates dazzle camouflage, used extensively during the First World War as a paint scheme for warships to confuse the enemy.

The technique made it difficult to estimate the size, speed and direction ships were travelling by using a complex pattern of geometric shapes in contrasting colours.

Over the top of the dazzle camouflage, Gubb has used the last words of revolutionary American poet, natural scientist and historian Henry David Thoreau: “Now comes good sailing…” The first in a series of striking new commissions for the exterior façade of the new Open Eye Gallery.

S Mark Gubb was born in Romsey, 1974. Solo exhibitions include Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff; Aspex in Portsmouth; and Ceri Hand Gallery, Liverpool. Group exhibitions include SEVENTEEN, London; Matthew Bown Gallery, Berlin; and Talbot Rice Gallery, Edinburgh.

S Mark Gubb lives and works in Cardiff. He is represented by Ceri Hand Gallery, London.
