Beta Blocker

December 6 to August 18

About this exhibition

Artists: Miik Green

Medium: Painting, mixed media

This exhibition is a continuation of Miik Green’s Xylem series, paintings that combine unlike materials, sealed within layers of resin. BETA BLOCKER references the group of drugs that combat various heart conditions and links the ideas of tension and disequilibrium in arts practice to the biological.

Using mixed media on aluminium he creates translucent, colourful surfaces that seemingly capture movement in the momentary. Pigments, inks and resins are mixed with resistant media creating structures that react and emerge within the surfaces of the works. These vivid microbial-like forms are encapsulated as the resin seals, trapped in opposing interaction.
