LONDON.- Ambika P3
presents a programme of new high resolution digital works by artist and cinematographer, Terry Flaxton
Highlights include the World Portraits series shot in Beijing, Venice, Glastonbury, London and New York as well as selection of 16 installation works made worldwide.
The exhibition will feature 12 High Definition works from single screen to installation and represents one of the largest gatherings of high definition display, yet made in the UK (there will be six 20 by 10 foot displays).
Four major installation pieces will also be showcased including the acclaimed In Other Peoples Skins, experienced by audiences of over 300,000 people in locations as diverse as Xi-an Fine Art Academy in China, Vasteras Cathedral, Sweden and New Yorks St. John the Divine Cathedral.
A UK tour was funded by the Arts Council and was seen at eight cathedrals & Bath Abbey. This exhibition is the culmination of three years work and investigation, and perfectly showcases the nature of the high definition medium through the innovative projection of Terrys works.
