Tony Blackmore (born in Devon, UK, 1971) graduated with a first class BA (Hons) in Fine Art Sculpture from Kingston University in 1993 and an MA in Fine Art from the Wimbledon College of Art in 2013. He lives and works in London, is an artist and curator and writes for Saturation Point Projects. He recently completed a commission for the five-star St.Ermins Hotel in central Venice. In 2017 he was awarded artist in residence for St. Peters-in-the-Forest Church, Epping Forest. During his MA he was one of six artists from across the University of the Arts, London, MA programmes awarded a residency at Tokyo Space, Tokyo.
Tony is represented by Cube Gallery, London, and during 2019 he was selected to show with Cube at Art Karlsruhe, Context Miami and SOFA Chicago. His recent 2019 group exhibitions include Iterations (Arthouse1), Possible Architectures (Stephen Lawrence Gallery) and the Royal Society of Sculptors Summer Exhibition. In 2018, he was selected for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and The Momentum (Angus Hughes Gallery). He is an active Member of the Royal Society of Sculptors with his work held in private collections in Europe, Asia and the USA.
Tony’s ‘Paperfolds’ are created with a single sheet of drafting film using a process of drawing, scoring and folding. Influenced by thirteen years of working with Civil Engineers, he combines the rationale of geometry and structure with an element of personal expression to evoke aspects of both the natural landscape and the modern city-scape. This ambiguity arises from compositions that explore the creative potentialities of repetition, numerical sequencing and the use of rules or systems within constructive interference or grid-based patterns.
Forthcoming Group Exhibitions
‘Cut, Fold, Burn’, a three person show with Peter Monaghan and Rachael Nee will run from 25 January to 8 February 2020 at Cube Gallery, London. Tony is Cube’s featured artist at Art Karlsruhe from 13 to 16 February 2020.
